This chapter describes a kind of scribal authorship and publication which should by now be perfectly familiar. It tells of a manual where Len Smith's ideas are written. It notes that once the existence of his manual came to be known, it was recognized as a means of winning games against coaches ignorant of its precepts. Its reserved status was retained through certain coaches having access while others were denied it or given only partial access. It explains why it was possible that while the institution survived the death of Anne, the daughter of King George I, its centrality to the ideological debates of its society did not.

Keywords:   scribal authorship, Len Smith, Anne, King George I
