1881-1882 · New York
Preceded by Brentano's Monthly which had a chess column in the monthly magazine. Started in May 1881 and was issued in two volumes, volume one May 1881 through April 1882; volume two May 1882 numbers 1 and 2 and 3 together (August-September 1882) all published. This wonderful publication had great art work by R Halm with many of the prominent players of the day. The beautiful color problem plates were contained in most of the numbers issued and the problem department was very creative with many of the best known composers represented. It contained chess news from Europe and would have articles on chess history and covered the tournaments of the day.
Rebound in modern brown cloth, some internal fingering, closed tear at page 541/2, some occasional small marginal markings, previous owner's name on front end papers else a very good set. (Inventory #: C1269)
