The chess set was probably given to Flinders by one of his closest friends on Mauritius, Mr Labauve, who presented him with a chess set on 1 April 1810 for his entertainment on the return voyage to England. For some brief notes on this chess set see Mike Darlow, "Matthew Flinders' Chess Set" in the Australian Woodworker", Nov/Dec 2004 p.52.
