I just found William Steinitz: Selected Chess Games (Dover) used at a pretty good price.. does anyone here have it? care to review it?
Good book it was published in 1901 by Charles Devide a year after Stenitz's death under the title: A memorial to William Steinitz it's quite an old book the book was expanded around 1974 with the new introduction by David Hooper.
I recommend the Book Wilhelm Steinitz First World Champion by Sid Picard it has 1022 Games 227 games annotated by Steinitz himself
You can find the games in a database but the collection is nice to have on a book shelf and take out on a rainy day.
thanks! what can you say about the comments in the games? (both books)
I like them both the notes are of good quality the annotations from Steinitz games must have come from the International Magazine (1885-1891) and the field he wrote in when he was in England.
Volumes of the International Chess Magazine can still be obtained:
The quality isn't great low tech publishers like nabu press scan the origional in whatever shape it was in warts and all diagrams are spotty or blurry and the text isn't always the best good intent bad execution!
Steinitz wrote one book called the modern chess instuctor:
It is a master work which includes analysis of the Ruy Lopez and Giuoco Piano Opening. For many years only part 1 was included the second part was rare and difficult to obtain edition olms combined the two.
the modern chess instructor seems very nice.. too bad it's so expensive :(
