A Romp Through a Chess Encyclopedia

We owe a big debt of gratitude to those who produce chess reference works.

These works are essential for chess communities to gain perspective. We learn more about chess in its many expressions. We have a record of a wide variety of events, persons, and information about chess. These reference works can open new dimensions of chess interests for us. They help us gain a wider and deeper appreciation for the wonderful game of chess.

A main reference work for many years has been Golombek's Encyclopedia of Chess, edited by Harry Golombek (New York: Crown Publishers, 1977). Though the work is "old" now; it still serves as a marvelous source of information about chess.

Harry Golombek OBE (1 March 1911 – 7 January 1995) was "a British chess player, chess author, and wartime codebreaker. He was three times British chess champion, in 1947, 1949, and 1955 and finished second in 1948" (see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Golombek).

We owe him many thanks for producing this standard chess reference work.
