Editor´s note

Dear readers,

  • after almost five years, another issue of the Quarterly for Chess History has entered the world. This long pause was, in the first place, due to the academic career of the editor, who for alt that time was unable to devote as much time to chess history as he would have liked. In 2015, the editor resigned as vice-dean for research and science of the Faculty of Law, Palacky University, after 12 years in this office. At the same time he completed several prolonged academic projects, which had previously absorbed most of his time and energy and so now it looks at last as though his desk is almost clear. For this reason he has promised hirnself that in future he will give much more time to the faithful love of his life, the history of chess. The first step on this road is to resume the publishing of the Quarterly for Chess History. With the help of Tony Gillam, John S. Hilbert, Alain Pallier, Ivan Bottlik, Fabrizio Zavatarelli and some others you can hold in your hands this new volume with a good deal of interesting historical chess material.

At first sight you can see that unlike the previous 16 volumes there is now an editorial board. I have tried to obtain the cooperation in the next volume of QCH leading world chess historians. After publishing 16 volumes (with almost 7,000 pages of chess texts), I have self-critically admitted that it is not in the power of a single person and several elose associates from the sphere of chess history (special acknowledgments are due to Tony Gillam, but there are a great many more collaborators) to carry the burden and the fate of the whole publication. The involvement and collaboration of a greater number of chess historians, some of whom will take over the responsibility for separate sections of the periodical, should provide a higher standard of content and especially guarantee keeping to regular three-monthly intervals of publishing.

In content and structure there will be no surprise; this QCH follows all preceding volumes. So this time, too, you will find the usual sections, Chess Archives, Chess Biographies, Forgotten Chess Tournaments, Classical Chess Matches, Great Chess Players, Correspondence Chess, Women's Chess, Chess Research, Chess Miscellany, Chess Problems and Chess Reviews. Sharing in this issue are, beside the editor, the most prominent living British chess historian Tony Gillam, a legend of American chess history and author of many essential chess biographies John S. Hilbert, the leading Hungarian chess historian Ivän Bottlik, and a representative of the rising young generation of Italian chess historians Fabrizio Zavatareli, also known as the author of the recent beautiful chess biography of Kolisch. The section Chess Problems is, as usual, taken care of by Alain Pallier.

Another great advantage for the future of QCH is the fact that the care ofthe readers and the new web pages (www.moravian-chess.cz) have been taken over by the editor's daughter, a graduate in media studies and marketing, who has practical experience with the editing and marketing of the periodical Media Studies. When you visit OUT new web pages, you will immediately notice the positive effect of her participation in the family firm.
