ChesscomposerBlogspot reports about him:

Tattersall was a strong chess player.

He gave up chess to become an expert on oriental and British carpets (see "The carpets of Persia: a book for those who use and admire them", 1931)

and a curator at the Victoria and Albert museum on Kensington.

In 1910, he wrote "A Thousand Endgames, volume 1", the first English-language book dedicated to endgames only (volume II in 1911).

Unfortunately the compilation did not indicate the sources of the studies.
