'ABCLargeCV': Never commented since posted 8 yrs. ago, Chancellor Chess studies were devised by the American problemist par excellence Sam Loyd(1841-1911) around the turn of the 20th century. Puerto Rican Gabriel Maura's Modern Chess also has 9x9 embodiment, invented in 1960's, but has 'Minister'(B+N) rather than Foster's 'Chancellor'(R+N).
