so there you have it guys, thats all the chess books i have collected over the years. feel free to critique my collection, ie wich books you think are just fat that needs to be trimmed, call me a jack @$$, or what ever. Im feeling the love today, lol.
If you purchase ten books a year, on the average, for 38 years, your collection will look like this:
I spy some old Chess Lifes even more than 38 years old, I believe.
Good eye. I do have a lot of old back issues of "Chess Review - The Picture Chess Magazine" "Chess Life and Review""Inside Chess"etc.
Fancy sending some of them to me ??
The nice thing about all those books is how used they look!
Is there "My 60 Memorable Games" and "The Pride and the Sorrow of Chess".
I have a two copies of Fischer's My 60 Memorable Games, one in paperback and one in hardback (and not the butchered new algebraic edition, but the old descriptive editions) but no, I do not have a copy of Paul Morphy: The Pride and Sorrow of Chess.
If you go to my website, you can see a high resolution photo of the books. http://www.edcollins.com/chess/chess-books.htmClick the photo for a high resolution pic. (Note that your browser might be set up to automatically scale the image to fit the page. If so, you should turn that feature off, to see the full image.) I also list all of my books, by title, underneath the photo. The large book directly next to the "Chess - 5334 Problems, Combinations, And Games" by Laszlo Polgar is "Pal Benko - My Life, Games And Compositions" by Pal Benko.
Ooh...San Antonio 72...
I was going to be impressed with the collection until I saw Ray Keene titles in there :)
I also have always loved Modern Chess Opening Traps by William Lombardy. I read that one a lot as a kid. I need to get another copy...
So, where do you live and when are you not home? ;-)
Seriously, I am more than a little envious. A litle curious also: What's been read and what hasn't?
