    The Modern Chess Instructor
    Foreward by Andy Soltis
    Catalog Code: B0104RE

    More than 125 years ago, one of the first great chess books appeared. The Modern Chess Instructor, Part I, written by then world champion Wilhelm Steinitz, was released in 1889. It was his magnum opus, setting forth for the first time the principles of modern chess. It is no exaggeration to say that Steinitz’s writings have influenced every great player. This 21st century edition has converted the archaic English descriptive notation to algebraic and reformatted the text so that it conforms to the expectations of the 21st century chessplayer. The Modern Chess Instructor’s rare second part, published in 1895, has also been added. The result is a genuine treasure trove of original ideas coupled with exposition of the foundation of modern chess theory. Every chessplayer will find The Modern Chess Instructor enjoyable and instructive, a journey back to the theoretical roots of modern chess.

    THIS BOOK IS WRITTEN IN RUSSIAN The Sokolsky chess opening is characterized by the move 1. b2-b4. It is an unorthodox opening, designed to get the opponent out of the book.

It has even been played by Black at the world championship level, as Spassky played 1. d4 b5 against Petrosian.

    The Art of Positional Play in Chess
    Catalog Code: B0110IS

    Samuel Reshevsky is the ideal person to write a book on positional play because that was exactly the way he played: positionally. Reshevsky preferred to crush his opponents slowly, like a python, rather than to win with a blaze of tactics.

    6th American Chess Congress
    Catalog Code: B0005IS

    New York 1889 was the strongest chess tournament ever held up until that time. It was supposed to be for the World Chess Championship, but it has never been recognized as such, primarily because Steinitz, who helped organize the event and who was present as a journalist, refused to play.
