Gino Di Felice has become well known with his beautiful created works on chess results but here in this well produced Moravian book,he concentrates completely on the bibliography of books,bulletins and programs. Again a impressive work where I found 3096 competitions and 5066 publications, this all must have been a unbelievable research of years. The bibliography is divided into five parts, part one is devoted to individual tournament, part two to individual matches, part three to team tournaments, part four to team matches and part five is devoted to correspondence competitions. he correspondence competitions are all listed alphabetically by name. Team tournaments are also pleasantly listed alphabetically according to where the tournament took place.
Chess book collectors will find this book very useful, for the first time in chess history there is a bibliography of chess books! For example it surprised me to see so many editions on the 1935 and 1937 world championship matches between Euwe and Alekhine. But also the correspondence chess match between Amsterdam and Antwerpen of 1829 was unknown to me. As we can see there are not many books on correspondence chess, a small 14.5 pages. The book is completed by a list of sources and a general index of competitions. Conclusion: This book belongs in hands of all chess lovers!
