American Chess Magazine vol.3: July 1899 - December 1899 - 2nd hand
2nd hand book like new, unread. Hardback.
Amongst the last offerings are reports from the London congress, in which Lasker won the masters' event and Marshall the minor. There are numerous prose articles touching on the mental condition of chess masters, such as a review of Steinitz's career, followed by the ex-World Champion commenting bitterly that he was being criticised for not winning a prize for the first time in my life, news of Schiffers' confinement in a St. Petersburg asylum and an analysis of the physical properties of Lasker's brain by a phrenologist. However, favourite has to be a delightful piece entitled He plays chess with the Pope on the master of games in the Vatican, a Father Giulio. 264pp.
