More on Castling in Chess

Following up The Origin of Castling in Chess, I'll continue with Murray (p.830) where I left off in that previous post (p.811-812 as mentioned in Murray's first paragraph).

Note the frequent mention of the word 'leap', a rule that was a carryover from the precursors of modern chess. I'll cover that in another post.
