Quarterly for chess history. Volume 1, No. 1, Spring 1999, 312pp.
Fiala, V.


"Christmas has come early for chess historians / this quaint hardcover labour of love by Dr Fiala, Czech publisher, editor and distributor, is packed with original research. It kicks off with a 31/page feature on Pillsbury's 1902 simultaneous tour of Great Britain, followed by biographical pieces on Rudolf Spielmann, Paul Saladin Leonhardt and Richard Teichmann. The main feauture is in ""forgotten"" tiurnaments, and stars a lengthly annotated report of Nice 1930 (won by Tartakower). There follows a fascinating account of a little known Alekhine visit and match in San Juan 1933. Whilst the quality of the written English is wildly variable throughout, the prose remains remarkably eloquent one can easily forgive a few creative spellings to an author whose passion for chess research shines on every page. It is hard to believe that such scholarely material can be amassed on a quarterly basis in future, as optimistically promised, but this initial volume is a treasure trove to savour"" (Reviewed by BCM, September 1999) 312 pages" (EUR 29.00)
