Fun with Cards, Solitaires, Tricks and Fortunes, 1927, [New York] George Sully and Company

In Dean Bryden’s book “Fun with Cards, Solitaires, Tricks, and Fortunes” you can find 30 different types of Solitaire. The Demon, (4 card tableau + reserve), explained on page 77 includes a very detailed example play of the Demon, move by move.

On page 44 you can find “Canfield” which refers here to the seven-card (Klondike) version:

“This is a very interesting form of Solitaire with the odds very much against the player. The following ingenious method of scoring this game is said to have been developed during the gold rush to the Klondike. The player pays fifty (cents, dollars, or matches, depending upon his temperament) for the deck and gets 5 for every card he succeeds in playing on the bases.“
