    My Fifty Years of Chess
    A Magnificent Collection of 140 Brilliant Games
    Catalog Code: B0355IS

    Known for an aggressive style and an ability to get out of trouble that earned him the nickname "the Great Swindler", Marshall recorded both high finishes and disappointing results in elite tournaments. His best result came at Cambridge Springs 1904 where he finished two points ahead of Lasker and David Janowski. This helped him find backing for the Lasker-Marshall World Championship Match in 1907.

    Let's Play Checkers
    Catalog Code: B0310IS

    This is regarded as one of the best books for the average player ever written. This modern textbook pays particular attention to the many problems confronting the average player. Besides an extensive game collection that shows the best restrictive lines for Black and White (thus reducing study to a minimum) it includes a new method for studying the Mid-Game.

    World Chess Championship Candidates Tournament Zurich 1953
    Catalog Code: B0285IS

    Whenever any grandmaster of chess is asked the question “Which chess book helped you the most” or “To what book do you most attribute your success”, the answer is almost always the same. All or almost all grandmasters say there is one book that stands above all others in leading to success over the board. The name of that book is: International Grandmasters Chess Tournament Zurich 1953 by David Bronstein, which is reprinted here under the more commonly used title of World Chess Championship Candidates Tournament Zurich 1953.

    Collection of Chess Studies by Troitzky
    Catalog Code: B0058IS

    Alexey Alexeyevich Troitzky (1866-1942) is considered to have been the greatest composer of chess endgame studies ever. To call him a genius is to trivialize his accomplishments, because there are many geniuses, but few can equal the output of Troitzky. In his lifetime, Troitzky composed more than one thousand chess endgame studies.
