    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.
