Luis Ramírez de Lucena (c. 1465 – c. 1530) was a Spanish chess player who created the earliest known chess book. He is thought to be the son of humanist author and diplomat Juan de Lucena. Lucena authored the first extant printed book on chess, Repetición de Amores y Arte de Ajedrez with CL  Juegos de Partido (“Repetition of Love and the Art of Playing Chess with 150 Games”), in Salamanca in 1497. The book analyzes eleven chess openings, but it also contains numerous simple mistakes, leading chess historian H. J. R. Murray to believe that it was written in a haste. The book was published during a time when the rules of chess were evolving into their contemporary form (see beginnings of modern chess), and some of the 150 situations in the book are from the old game while others are new. There are less than a dozen copies of the book. Commentators believe that much of the material was plagiarized from Francesc Vicent's now-lost 1495 book Libre dels jochs partits dels schacs in nombre de 100.
