Modern Chess Openings was first published in 1911. It has been updated approximately every five years since and "the many recent master tournaments have rendered necessary an up-to-date book on the Openings". The book is intended to be a guide for match and tournament players.
Modern Chess Openings
Cabbage Heads and Chess Kings is a book of witty remarks about unusual chess positions and strange games by famous old chess masters. Here is a delightful addition to the chess library, a collection of witty and lively articles on all aspects of the game. Bruce Hayden is a chess writer of repute, a skilled player and as a commentator he possesses in addition to considerable learning a quick sense of the strange and curious.
Cabbage Heads and Chess Kings
This is essentially a book on chess history, showing how different styles of chess play became popular and flourished and then faded in popularity, such as for example the Hyper-Modern Style of play that became ''All the Rage'' in the 1920s and 1930s.

Church's Fried Chicken First International Chess Tournament
San Antonio 1972 was either the strongest chess tournament ever played in the history of the United States or, if not the very strongest, then second only to New York 1924. What makes this book especially great is not merely was it a great tournament with great players, but that the players annotated some of their own games. In this day and age, there are millions of games in the chess databases, but annotated games are increasingly hard to find.
