Smyslov's Best Games, Volumes 1 - 2nd hand
Volume 1 1935-1957: 140 annotated games, together with an article describing Smyslov's career and his approach to chess"For more than half a century I have been taking part in chess competitions. With the leading masters of different generations I have played thousands of games, only a limited number of which have found their way into these two volumes.
In them I wanted to reflect my best creative achievements, where logic of thought enables an artistic impression to be created, and to reflect my view on chess as an opportunity for the human spirit to aspire to the heights of a genuine art.
Whether I have succeeded in this aim, it is for the reader to judge. I achieved the greatest success in my chess career in 1957, when I defeated Mikhail Botvinnik in a match for the world championship.
