    CLEARANCE - Viktors Pupols - American Master
    Catalog Code: CB0149RB

    This thin volume is an enlarged version of a very lengthy two-part article which appeared in the June and July 1982 issue of Northwest Chess that premier sectional monthly out of Seattle, Washington. Viktor's Pupols is a writer's dream. Pleasantly eccentric in virtually everything he does (and as the reader will soon discover, the owner of a chess style more baroque than Walt Disney's Fantasia), the man is an unstanchable torrent of eloquence.

    CLEARANCE - Howard Staunton
    the English world chess champion
    Catalog Code: CB0199RB

    Howard Staunton (1810 - 22 June 1874) was an English chess master who is generally regarded as having been the world's strongest player from 1843 to 1851. He promoted a chess set of clearly distinguishable pieces of standardised shape that is still the style which must be used for competitions. He was the principal organizer of the first international chess tournament in 1851. From 1840 onwards he became a leading chess commentator, and won matches against top players of the 1840s. However, the achievement of Staunton have been neglected or even ignored by his own countrymen and this book seeks to rectify that.
