American Chess Bulletin 1911 8
288 Seiten, Leinen, Reprint, Caissa 90-Olomouc, 1998
The year 1911 sees the great international tournaments at San Sebastian and Carlsbad, as well as the 13th and last in the series of Anglo-American cable matches (Great Britain won 6-4 and were to hold the Sir George Newnes trophy permanently at the City of London Chess Club). In a less than completely serious commentary on these matches, Emanuel Lasker complains of declining standards in English - speaking countries. His irony is lost on some readers, and a lively correspondence under the title "The doctor and the birch ensues".
The American Chess Bulletin of beloved memory was a New York publication which grew out of Marshall's success at Cambridge Springs 1904. Edited and published by Hartwig Cassel and Herman Helms, it was a definitive journal of record for USA and European events. Now - providing a great historical service to chess fans everywhere - Publishing House Moravian Chess have reissued this great series in stoutly bound hardback volumes, bringing back to life the essence of the turn-of-the-century chess scene. Each issue is packed to the brim with top-quality games, analysis and tournament reports, as well as fascinating background material and witty anecdotes which really captured the spirit of the times. A collector's dream!
