    Book Description

    This is the masterpiece by World Chess Champion Jose Raul Capablanca who is regarded as the strongest chess player who ever lived, prior to the arrival of Bobby Fischer.

    World Champion Mikhail Botvinnik regarded Capablanca's Chess Fundamentals as the best chess book ever written.

    This is a reprint of the original "Chess Fundamentals" by Capablanca, as first published in 1921 and only a preface added by Capablanca in 1934.

    The reader here can feel confident that this reprint contains the exact, complete words of Capablanca. Unlike other reprints, not one word has been changed or omitted. All 14 illustrative games plus another five games in the initial text have been converted into algebraic notation in an appendix added in the back of this book, with diagrams.
