The Official Encyclopedia of Bridge


The Official Encyclopedia of Bridge
6th edition cover

The Official Encyclopedia of Bridge (OEB) presents comprehensive information on the card game contract bridge with limited information on related games and on playing cards. It is "official" in reference to the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) who authorized its production and whose staff prepared and/or supervised its various editions.

The front inside panel of the dust jacket states:

"This work is the most complete and authoritative book of information, guidance and instruction ever published for bridge players."

The first edition of the Encyclopedia was published in 1964 with Richard Frey as Editor-in-Chief; the seventh and latest edition was published in 2011 following intermediate editions in 1971, 1976, 1984, 1994 and 2001. The Executive Editor for the first six was Alan Truscott, bridge editor of the New York Times. For the fourth through sixth editions, Henry Francis succeeded Frey as Editor-in-Chief. Frey and Francis were also successive editors of the ACBL monthly membership magazine. Numerous contributing editors to the Encyclopedia were listed in each edition as were members of Editorial Advisory Boards. The seventh edition was redesigned and prepared since 2006 and release in November 2011. Editor was Brent Manley, with primary assistance from Mark Horton, Barry Rigal and Tracey Yarbro. This is the first time where a huge amount of photographs are included, together with 2 CDs, one with the full printed version and one with biographies of all ACBL Diamond and higher Master Point players, and results.

First edition - 1964

The first edition set the ground work for the goals and scope of the Encyclopedia. In its forward, Editor-in-Chief Richard L. Frey observed that:

The only previous Encyclopedia of Bridge was edited by Ely Culbertson and published in 1935 ... The ambitious goal set for this Official Encyclopedia of Bridge was simple to state: "To provide an official and authoritative answer to any question a reader might ask about the game of contract bridge and its leading players."[1]

On its dust jacket, the first edition states:

This encyclopedia is the most complete and authoritative book of information, guidance, and instruction for bridge players, ever published. It covers every aspect of bridge in all bridge-playing countries of the world; it contains complete and lucid definitions of every term; it describes and illustrates every standard bid, every recognized convention, and every type of play.[2]

The first edition is divided into two main parts:

  1. Main listings: The Introduction [3] indicates that the entries in the main listings fall into five main categories (technical, historical, procedural, biographical and geographical, and terminological) and are presented alphabetically over 683 pages with entries frequently ending with cross-references to other entries on related category topics. Over 50 bridge-playing countries are listed and brief biographies of over 1,500 American and over 400 other players are recorded.[3]
  2. Bibliography: The main listings are followed by an eight page bibliography.

The Harvard University online catalog[4] entry for the first edition includes a note that "A great majority of the unsigned technical entries are by Alan Truscott."

In 1967 an edition revised for the needs of a British and European audience was published by Paul Hamlyn (London) under the title The Bridge Players' Encyclopedia. It was described as an International Edition based on The Official Encyclopedia of Bridge of 1964. The edition modified American spellings, 'translated' bidding structures to the more widely used Acol system, omitted biographical notes on some lesser known Americans and added biographical notes on British and European players resulting in coverage of over 50 countries and over 500 players[5]. The editors were Ben Cohen and Rhoda Barrow.

Second edition - 1971

Richard Frey writes[6] that since the first edition of 1964,

...bridge has attracted new adherents throughout the world, systems and conventions have been more and more influenced by "science" and "artificiality"...

The second edition is divided into four main parts[7]:

  1. Main listings: technical bidding and play, historical, procedural (tournament organization, laws, etc.), geographical, and terminological. As in the first edition, entries frequently end with cross-references to other entries on related topics.
  2. Biographies of leading personalities: The biographies include over 2,000 Americans and over 500 players from elsewhere.
  3. Tournament results: American Bridge Association National Championships, All-American Regional Championships, and European, Far East and South American Championships. World Championships and USBA Grand Nationals are in the main listings
  4. Bibliography: listed according to subject matter.

Third edition - 1976

Richard Fey comments on several themes in the Foreword to the third edition:

We have seen rapid and radical developments in bidding systems; explosions of new cheating scandals and employment of devices to prevent them; the creation of techniques for warning opponents about bids that have unusual meanings...

...the newly uncovered evidence that bridge was known and played before the earliest previous accreditation (to Russia) of its origin and its name.[8]

The third edition is organized into the same four parts as the second. There are again over 2,500 biographies but newer and stricter criteria was applied and many previous entries have been superseded by new ones; successes in competitions remain in the appropriate event listings.[9]

Fourth edition - 1984

The fourth edition contains 922 pages — the most of any edition. Again, the pace of change in bridge is great as Richard Frey, now Editor Emeritus having been succeeded as Editor-in-Chief by Henry Francis, notes in the Foreword,

...a quantum leap in the technical material...many new and intriguing methods and ideas have made their appearance in the past seven years, and some have been widely adopted.[10]

The organization of the fourth edition follows that of the third and second.

Fifth edition - 1994

In the Foreword, Alan Truscott notes,

The changes in the technical section have been far greater than in any of the earlier editions, reflecting the many theoretical advances in the past decade.[11]

The four part organization of the book follows the format of its immediate predecessors. More than 2,800 bridge personalities[12] are listed in the biographies, largely updated by Dorthy Fancis[11]; Truscott prepared most of the technical and foreign material with Frank Stewart contributing significantly to the technical[11]; the expanded 21 page bibliography was prepared by William Sachen.[11] Previous editions were published by Crown Publishers Inc. of New York; the 5th edition was published by the American Contract Bridge League.

The Foreword to the sixth edition states,

This edition has been prepared primarily by Henry Francis, with major contributions and help from Alan Truscott and Barry Rigal. Once again Dorthy Francis has updated American biographies and world-wide tournament results. Tim Bourke, who owns one of the world's most complete bridge libraries and who assembled the Morehead Library at ACBL Headquarters, prepared the bibliography.[13]

The four part organization of the book follows the format of its immediate predecessors. More than 3,000 bridge personalities[14] are listed in the biographies; the 60 page bibliography doubled that of the previous edition.

Seventh edition - 2011

The 7th edition had its beginning about 2006, when decisions were made about the format, the contents and the people who would be involved in putting it together. This edition is a departure from previous editions. Shape and size changed, with bigger pages and font size. It introduces photographs - lots of them. It comes with an index instead of a cross reference table. Items have been separated into chapters rather than being run together in alphabetic order. 26 chapters do come in paper and CD format. An additional CD brings 8 chapters with all biographies from Diamond Life Master up to Grand Life Master, including Bridge Hall of Fame and National Directors biographies. 3 appendix are devoted to North American and Masterpoins Race Results and World Bridge Federation Tournaments' Results.[15]
