Volume 22, 1925 American Chess Bulletin 1925
"The year of the strong Moscow event won by Bogolyubow, which featured seven of the stars from New York but notably lacked the Russian aristocrat Alekhine.

As well as annotated games, the ACB carries profiles of the players and a match review. Plus, the New York ""candidates"" tournament and London's FIDE Congress which is won by Hungary, ahead of Denmark and the British Empire third, with gentleman-players Sir George Thomas and Dane Norman Hanson (the player who Donner said always sealed an open move) tying for best individual score on 12/15. 216 pages." (EUR 22.00)

(EUR 22.00)
Volume 26, 1929 American Chess Bulletin 1929
Published by Hartwig Cassel and Hermann Helms since 1904, the magazine provides an excellent repositary of the world chess events of the year, with much happening in the USA and elsewhere: the great Carlsbad 1929 tournament won by Nimzowitsch, the Alekhin-Bogolyubow world championship, the world's champion's tournament victory at Bradley Beach, plus four international tournaments won by his leading rival Capablanca.(Reviewed by BCM).

Volume 27, 1930 American Chess Bulletin 1930
A further reprint of the US magazine founded by Cassel and Helms in 1904 there is much to be enjoyed in this volume with its lively coverage of the international chess scene as well as domestic US news.

Volume 28, 1931 American Chess Bulletin 1931
"The 1931 volume has coverage of Hastings 1930/31, where Capablanca lost to Sultan Khan and had to be content with second place behind Max Euwe. Euwe is criticised by HT Bland for a agreeing a 176-move draw with Sir George Thomas in the last round, thereby securing outright victory: ""There is far too much of that sort of thing nowadays, those draws where neither try to win if a draw will suffice. It is not fair to the other competitors."" The July/August edition proudly reported the USA's first place in the International Team Tournament in Prague, to which HT Bland appends a celebratory poem.208 pages." (EUR 22.00)
Volume 29, 1932 American Chess Bulletin 1932
Helms was already long into his reign as editor in the early thirties, and this is a splendid resource for the chess of that era, with comprehensive coverage of world chess and many illustrations. The drab brown cover and poor photographic reproduction do not do justice to the richly entertaining and informative material to be found on the inside.200 pages. (EUR 22.00)
Volume 30, 1933 American Chess Bulletin 1933
Helms describes how the first FIDE President, Dr. Rueb, "devoted eight years of unselfish, altruistic endeavour to the establishment and upbuilding of an official body which shall promote and regulate chess interests throughout the world". Elsewhere, ACB quoted Koltanowski's The Chess World about Pirc, who had just finished second at Hastings. "Vlasimir Pirc is a pleasant young fellow, but rather shy (so the girls at the New Year's Eve dance at Hastings said)? his standing grief at Hastings was that everybody insisted upon pronouncing his name Peerk, whereas it should be pronounced Peerts". (Reviewed by BCM) (EUR 22.00)
