Learning from the great Capablanca

Today, all of a sudden, I got a chess translation idea ! I read this about the well known book by Capablanca :

Botvinnik described Chess Fundamentals as the greatest of all books on the game

and I read a few months ago that the original version of the book Chess Fundamentals by Capablanca was "in the public domain", and available freely at Gutenberg books but only with the rather unpleasant to read "English" chess notation. (like 1.P-K4 P-K4 instead of 1.e4 e5).

So ... I thought that I could "translate" the whole thing into the regular, more widely used, algebraic chess notation, while still keeping it available free of charge.

I found myself a new project, to help to make a better world ! Laughing

But ... when I just wanted to look up the original book, I noticed that other people are already working on that !!! Hooray !!!
