  Remarks George Frederic Pardon was an industrious booksellers' hack, rarely appearing before the public under his own name. He frequently used the pen name "Captain Crawley". In the estimation of "Cavendish" he wrote "the worst book on games ever published." It's often erroneously believed that Pardon was also the author of Backgammon: Its History and Practice.
