British Chess

Britain In Pictures

Product Code: B0320IS

Alternative Views:


British Chess is a picture book containing information almost available nowhere else. It has the first chess man, the first chess board, the first chess picture, the first chess diagram. It has games, diagrams, problems, positions and stories about chess that no other book else has. We are shocked to learn that an 17 year old British boy was the youngest person ever to be accepted into the British championship and finished third and after that defeated Soviet Grandmaster Kotov. He on his way to gaining the grandmaster title himself, when he died suddenly from appendicitis.
