Can anyone help me with the publishing year of this book, for it does not have a year or edition in it. From my research, there is a london edition (1923) with the same tranlator John Hart, so I am guessing this translation is from the 30s-40s? David McKay company is the publisher. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. More pictures:
"Sometimes the big new titles from the big publishers get all the attention. It's true these are often great buys, but there's also the risk of overlooking little gems by smaller publishers. Or, as the great Italian philosopher Calimero used to say, "Life's so unfair when you're small".
Even though it's only 130 pages and looks decidedly modest in size, Modern Ideas in Chess by Richard Réti (1889-1929) is a real classic in chess literature. First published in 1923, Russell Enterprises recently published a "21st century" edition in English with figurine algebraic notation and a foreword by Andrew Soltis. I hadn't read the book before. I wish I had.
Modern Ideas in Chess is a compilation of 45 essays on the evolution of chess understanding from the mid-1850s until the 1920s. After almost ninety years, it is still as fresh and insightful as it was to contemporaries of the great Slowakian player. In fact, one of the reasons why the book still looks so modern is probably because of its compact size. Réti's style of analysing is also very sober and his prose quite imaginative. Most importantly, he had an incredibly sharp eye when observing the chess style of his great predecessors."
thanks for the lead.
