Judy - early female chess problemist


Very interesting article on chesscafe about one of the first female problemists known as "Judy" by Rod Edwards
Part I : http://www.chesscafe.com/text/skittles338.pdf
Part II : http://www.chesscafe.com/skittles/skittles.htm but will soon go to archive.

There are just several problems quoted in the article with more references to Illustrated London News, the Chess Players’ Chronicle and other publications.

It will be interesting to see other problems not quoted in the article. Anybody has access to the sources? Michael?

Two more problems by Judy not quoted in the article. Rather easy by today's standards.

Judy, Chess Players’ Chronicle 1851 N11
(= 6+4 )

#5 1.Sg4!

Judy, Chess Players’ Chronicle 1851 N45
(= 4+1 )

#3 1.Sc4
