Summary Book Review British Chess Literature to 1914 :

Download or read book British Chess Literature to 1914 written by Tim Harding and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2018-04-12 with total page 399 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt:  A huge amount was published about chess in the United Kingdom before the First World War. The growing popularity of chess in Victorian Britain was reflected in an increasingly competitive market of books and periodicals aimed at players from beginner to expert. The author combines new information about the early history of the game with advice for researchers into chess history and traces the further development of chess literature well into the 20th century. Topics include today’s leading chess libraries and the use of digitized chess texts and research on the Web. Special attention is given to the columns that appeared in newspapers (national and provincial) and magazines from 1813 onwards. These articles, usually weekly, provide a wealth of information on early chess, much of which is not to be found elsewhere. The lengthy first appendix, an A to Z of almost 600 chess columns, constitutes a detailed research aid. Other appendices include corrections and supplements to standard works of reference on chess.

Summary Book Review H.E. Bird :

Download or read book H.E. Bird written by Hans Renette and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2016-08-26 with total page 608 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: No chess player of the 19th century had a longer, more varied career than Henry Edward Bird (1829–1908). After pursuing a civil career for years his love for chess prevailed. He belonged to the top level of British players for decades but he really shone at Simpson’s Divan. Bird’s accessibility, fierce attacking style and contempt for draws made him a people’s favorite but his proud and touchy character led him into disputes with his colleagues. A very strong and widely known player, he fell into oblivion after his death. This comprehensive first biography of Bird provides a detailed account of his personal life and a deeply researched coverage of his feats at the chess board. Almost 1,200 games are included, hundreds of them published here for the first time. Nearly 450 games—many of them thrilling all-out fights—are presented with a mix of contemporary and modern annotations.

Download or read book Eminent Victorian Chess Players written by Tim Harding and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2014-12-03 with total page 406 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book portrays British chess life in the nineteenth century through biographical studies of ten players who shaped the modern game. From Captain Evans, inventor of the famous gambit, to Isidor Gunsberg, England's first challenger for the world championship, personal narratives are blended with game annotations to reassess players' achievements and character. The author has combined deep reading in primary sources with genealogical research to reveal new facts and correct previous misunderstandings. Major chapters on Howard Staunton and William Steinitz, in particular, highlight the tensions between Englishmen and immigrants, amateurs and professionals. The contrasting long careers of Henry Bird and Joseph Blackburne provide a thread of continuity. The lives of several other important figures in Victorian chess are also presented. More than 160 games (with diagrams), several annotated in detail, and 50 photographs and line drawings are included. Appendices provide career records for all ten; there are extensive notes, a bibliography and indexes.

Summary Book Review Steinitz in London :

Download or read book Steinitz in London written by Tim Harding and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2020-07-17 with total page 421 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Drawing on new research, this first biography of William Steinitz (1836-1900), the first World Chess Champion, covers his early life and career, with a fully-sourced collection of his known games until he left London in 1882. A portrait of mid-Victorian British chess is provided, including a history of the famous Simpson's Divan. Born to a poor Jewish family in Prague, Steinitz studied in Vienna, where his career really began, before moving to London in 1862, bent on conquering the chess world. During the next 20 years, he became its strongest and most innovative player, as well as an influential writer on the game. A foreigner with a quarrelsome nature, he suffered mockery and discrimination from British amateur players and journalists, which eventually drove him to immigrate to America. The final chapters cover his subsequent visits to England and the last three tournaments he played there.

Summary Book Review Joseph Henry Blackburne :

Download or read book Joseph Henry Blackburne written by Tim Harding and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2015-08-13 with total page 592 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: During a career spanning more than 50 years, J.H. Blackburne (1841–1924) won the British Chess Championship and several international tournaments, at his peak becoming one of the world’s top three chess masters. A professional player who derived his livelihood from annual tours of chess clubs in England and other countries, entertaining and teaching amateur players, he astonished his contemporaries by the ease with which he played the game without sight of the chessboard. At 21, he set a world record for such exhibitions, competing against 12 club players simultaneously, and he continued to perform “blindfold” into his sixties. This first comprehensive biography of Britain’s greatest chess player of the 19th and early 20th centuries presents more than 1,000 of Blackburne’s games chronologically, including all his surviving games from serious competition, annotated in varying detail. Many are masterpieces containing beautiful combinations and instructive endgame play. Blackburne’s unusual family and social background are fully explored.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Excerpt from Westminster Papers, 1876, Vol. 8: A Monthly Journal of Chess, Whist, Games of Skill and the Drama Some little discussion has also arisen regarding the resignation of Mr. Bird from the committee of the City of London Chess Club, chiefly, it is said, because he is o posed to the infliction of an annual fine upon some prominent members whose contributions are necessary 0 the complete success of the Universities' Chess Match. Mr. Bird's consideration for these gentlemen does not appear to be shared by his colleagues, but as we know nothing of the Opinions held by the persons most nearly interested, we have not formed any of our own on the subject of controversy. We think it is much to be regretted, however, that a Chess player of Mr. Bird's eminence should have retired from the only representative Chess Club we have new in London.

Summary Book Review Chess Rivals of the 19th Century :

Download or read book Chess Rivals of the 19th Century written by Tony Cullen and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2020-12-07 with total page 478 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Many historical chess books focus on individual 19th century masters and tournaments yet little is written covering the full scope of competitive chess through the era. This volume provides a comprehensive overview, with more than a third of the 300 annotated games analyzed by past masters and checked by powerful engines. Players such as Max Lange and Cochrane, known to the chess public only by the name given to a fierce attack or gambit, are brought to life. Fifty masters are each given their own chapter, with brief biographies, results and anecdotes and an endgame section for most chapters.
