According to the catalog of the Bodleian Library, Frederic Jessel possessed four copies of Draw-Bridge, dated as follows: , 1906, 1909, and 1917. The Bodleian shows Charles Vidal Diehl and J.W. Yates as the authors. The booklet itself says “(Diehl-Yates Patent No. 4655/1905.)”
The Draw-Bridge apparatus (there were at least two different designs, and one of them had at least two sizes) consisted of two holders, each of which could hold a “hand,” so that (mainly, I suppose) Bridge and Whist, normally four-handed games, could be played by two people. The rule booklet, though it had the short-title of Draw-Bridge, also included some information on Draw-Whist.
Based on the quantity of sets I have seen offered on eBay and elsewhere, I believe that the Draw-Bridge apparatus is rather common. I don’t know whether the sets always came with a rule booklet. I have two sets. One has the booklet, and the other does not. But I suspect that the sets normally came with the booklet.
I do not have a first edition of the book , nor do I have the 1906 edition. My earliest copies are dated April, 1907, and each is different from the other.
