THE CUBIC KNIGHT'S TOUR.





(The Guarded Chessboard)
Some few years ago I happened to read somewhere that Abnit Vandermonde,
a clever mathematician, who was born in 1736 and died in 1793, had
devoted a good deal of study to the question of knight's tours. Beyond
what may be gathered from a few fragmentary references, I am not aware
of the exact nature or results of his investigations, but one thing
attracted my attention, and that was the statement that he had proposed
the question of a tour of the knight over the six surfaces of a cube,
each surface being a chessboard. Whether he obtained a solution or not I
do not know, but I have never seen one published. So I at once set to
work to master this interesting problem. Perhaps the reader may like to
attempt it.
