    A Short History of Chess
    With Chapters by B. Goulding Brown and H. Golombek
    Catalog Code: B0297IS

    Among the papers left by the late H. J. R. Murray was the typeset of A Short History of Chess which he wrote in 1917. This was not an abridgment of the standard work he had published some years earlier but a new and original brief history of the game from its beginnings until 1866. It has been brought up to date by Mr. B. Goulding Brown and Mr. Harry Golombek, covering the periods from 1866 to almost the present including the modern World Championships.

    The Great Chess Masters and Their Games
    The Human Side of Chess
    Catalog Code: B0234IS

    Is there any quality common in the world's greatest chess masters, any peculiarity which made them contestants upon that particular parti-coloured board and on no other? Is there, in other words, a chess-mind?

    Capablanca in the United Kingdom - 1911 - 1920
    Capablanca's Chess Career
    Catalog Code: B0002MV

    This is the first of a projected two volume series and describes the four visits made by Capablanca to the UK in 1911, 1913, 1919 and 1920. On each visit Capablanca played simultaneous displays against local enthusiasts. The first two visits were relatively short and exhibitions were confined to London and Birmingham but in 1919, following his triumph at the Hastings Victory Congress, the Cuban went "on tour" and played in 36 displays in English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish cities. In 1920 he played at Bristol and Woolwich as part of a European tour.

    Dr Fiala's research has unearthed 123 of Capablanca's simultaneous games, many never published in book form before, together with descriptions of the events taken from local newspapers of the time. This carefully researched book will be of interest to chess historians.
