Wheel within a Wheel

Sam Loyd (1841-1911) had become fascinated by the game of chess which he took up when he was 14 years old and began to attend a chess club with his brothers Thomas and Isaac. While still at school, Loyd won prizes for his chess problems. After leaving school Loyd began to study engineering, intending to become a steam and mechanical engineer, but he found he could make his living from his puzzles and chess problems.
