Sam Loyd's Cyclopedia of 5000 Puzzles, Tricks, and Conundrums

Scans of Sam Loyd's 1914 book, Cyclopedia of 5000 Puzzles, Tricks, and Conundrums (With Answers) are available here. The book is now in public domain. Here's what a reviewer said, "This book is so full of atmosphere of the USA prior to WW 1, with its thousands of puzzles, sly problems and riddles, that there is nothing like it, and never will be due to racial overtones. This is not intentional slurs, but instead how things were at the time, and illuminates what US citizens saw in their daily paper."
