    Alexander Alekhine - My Best Games of Chess - 1908-1937
    Two Volumes Bound as One
    Catalog Code: B0045DV

    This unequaled collection reproduces Alekhine's 220 best games, his own personal acounts of the dazzling victories that made him a legend.

    Alekhine's Best Games of Chess - 1938-1945
    Catalog Code: B0016IS

    This is a reprint of the original third book, with all of the games converted into Algebraic Figurine PGN Notation with diagrams in the back. Alekhine died in 1946, so this third volume was edited by International Master and British Chess Champion Conel Hugh O'Donel Alexander, based in part on the notes left by Alekhine to some of the games.
