    Bobby Fischer: My 60 Memorable Games - RUSSIAN EDITION
    With Introductions to the Games by International Grandmaster Larry Evans
    Catalog Code: B0282IS

    This is the infamous translation into Russian of the famous work by Bobby Fischer “My 60 Memorable Games”. This translation is famous because it was denounced vehemently by Bobby Fischer in his radio broadcasts because this translation was not authorized by him. However, he even more vehemently objected to the revision by the English publisher Batsford, as he had not given them permission to reprint his work even though they had a contractual right to reprint his work by virtue of an agreement they had with the original publisher, Simon and Schuster. To make matters much worse, the Batsford edition translated all the moves from Descriptive Notation as in P-K4 into Algebraic Notation as in e4. Batsford hired English Grandmaster Nunn to go through the book and correct any mistakes in Fischer's analysis. Unfortunately, in the course of “correcting” Fischer's “mistakes”, the English grandmaster made mistakes of his own, because one “correction” required an illegal move, as the piece was pinned, as otherwise the king would have been in check. So, in reality the correction was wrong and the original note by Fischer was correct.

    Chess The Hard Way
    Catalog Code: B0258IS

    'Chess the Hard Way'' is the autobiography of Daniel Abraham Yanofsky, who was not only Canada's first chess grandmaster buit was Canada's only grandmaster until the modern era. His career is remarkable. He was from a remote Indian town in Central Canada where there were no chess masters. Almost invariably, strong chess players only develop in places where there are strong players.

    The California Chess Reporter - VOLUME 9
    July-August 1974 to May-June 1976
    Catalog Code: B0220IS

    This is the last volume of California Chess Reporter and it contains the last issue of this publication, May-June 1976 issue. The last issue explains the reason why the publication was closing down. At the 1976 Delegates meeting of the US Chess Federation, a motion had been made to split the state of California in two for chess purposes. This had passed without significant debate or opposition. Similar motions had often been made at meetings of the California State Chess Federation and had repeatedly been voted down. The USCF Delegates seemingly knew nothing about this; it seems that nobody from Northern California was on-hand to explain the consequences of their proposed action

    The California Chess Reporter - VOLUME 9

    The California Chess Reporter - VOLUME 8
    July-August 1971 to May-June 1974
    Catalog Code: B0219IS

    In 1971-1974, there was a great increase in chess activity world wide because of the 1972 Fischer Spassky Match in Iceland. In California, there was the emergence of talented new players and the departures of some old ones. Louis D. Statham (1907–1983) established his famous series of tournaments in Lone Pine, California. Every year it got stronger as grandmasters throughout the world came in increasing numbers and the cash prizes got bigger. It eventually became annually the strongest Swiss System tournament in the world. First winner was Larry Evans who moved to nearby Reno, Nevada.

    My 60 Memorable Games
    Descriptive Edition
    Catalog Code: B0013IS

    This is an exact reproduction of the original 1969 classic work, My 60 Memorable Games by Bobby Fischer. Unfortunately, there have been many efforts by other authors and contributors to ''improve'' on Fischer's work by converting the text into algebraic notation and then correcting what they thought were mistakes in analysis. It turned out that what they thought were mistakes by Fischer were mistakes by themselves. Fischer's analysis was correct. Their's was wrong. As a result, Fischer famously went on the radio to denounce those who claimed to have ''improved'' on his work.

    Bobby Fischer's Games of Chess
    The First Collection of Celebrated Tournament Games Played by Bobby Fischer
    Catalog Code: B0032IS

    This is the only book ever written entirely by Bobby Fischer. It is not to be confused with other books with similar names that were written by other authors. Here is the blurb on the original dust jacket, as published in 1959: THERE ARE 34 games in this book.

    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.
