About this Item: A W Sijthoff's Uitgeversmaatschappij N V, Leiden, 1936. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. xxii+109 pages with tables, two frontispieces and plates. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") rebound in brown cloth with gilt letter to spine. Introduction by Hans Kmoch. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 5103) First edition. Needing a new opponent for his next title defense (and still unwilling to play Capablanca again), and with Bogolubov no longer a credible challenger in anyone's eyes, Alexander Alekhine picked a man who had lost two matches to Bogolubov, Max Euwe of The Netherlands. If Alekhine picked Euwe as another safe opponent, his plans went awry, owing to a combination of Alekhine's overconfidence, and the fact that by 1935, Max Euwe was a good deal stronger a player than anyone realized. The conditions for the contest was the best of 30 games, and 6 wins. After 30 well fought games from October 3 to December 16, 1935, Euwe won the match to become the 5th World Chess Champion. Looking back, Euwe had the following to say in a 1978 interview: "Just before our match we played in a strong tournament in Zurich, which Alekhine won, but I beat him. I finished second, with 12 out of 15, after losing to Lasker in the first round. In analyzing the games, we came to the conclusion that Alekhine's superiority over other masters was his opening knowledge. If he could not get the initiative or some advantage in the opening, he was willing to enter complications to try to muddy the water. So I went to Vienna for a few months to study Becker's files on the openings, which were the most complete and up to date at that time. Besides Kmoch, who was an expert in the openings, I also had Maroczy's help, mostly in the endgame. The match was a close fight. Even after the 24th game the standing was 12-12 (the match was for thirty games). But then I won two games in succession, while Alekhine could only win one more. Of course it was stupid for me to give him a draw in the last game, since I had a won game. But the draw was enough for me to win the World Title." After 30 games, Euwe achieved victory of 15½-14½ and became the 5th World Chess Champion. Condition: Rebound with original stiff boards bound in. Original front board rebacked with chips and tears showing, through else a very good copy. Seller Inventory # C0468

About this Item: American Chess Bulletin/Printing Craft, New York and London, 1925. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. publisher's stiff green boards with black lettering to spine and cover. Annotations by Alekhine. (Betts: 25-73) First edition. In December 1923, following an aborted attempt to arrange a World Championship match between Capablanca and Alekhine, Hermann Helms, publisher of the American Chess Bulletin, Harry Latz, the General Manager of the Hotel Alamac in New York and Norbert Lederer, the Secretary of the Manhattan Chess Club, set about organizing a tournament to rival Cambridge Springs (1904). The tournament took place in the Hotel Alamac from the 16th of March to the 18th of April 1924. The participants were Dr. Emanuel Lasker, Capablanca, Alekhine, Marshall, Janowski, Maroczy, Bogolyubov, Reti, Tartakover, Edward Lasker and Yates. The time limit was 30 moves in two hours and 15 moves per hour thereafter. Capablanca was expected to be the winner but the 55-year-old Dr. Lasker proved that he was by no means a spent force and ran away with the tournament. In a number of ways, the tournament paralleled the St Petersburg (1914) tournament with the top three place finishers ten years older. It was also notable for Reti's use of his own opening, resulting in Capablanca's first tournament loss in eight years, and a number of masterpieces that were created. the brilliancy prizes included A silver cup and $75 in gold to Reti for his win over Bogolyubov in Round 12, $50 to Marshall for his win over Bogolyubov in Round 18 and $25 to Capablanca for his win over Em Lasker in Round 14, Lasker's only loss of the tournament. Emanuel Lasker captured first with an impressive score of 16 points of 20 and the $1500 first prize. Jose Capablanca fished a distant second with 14.5 and $1000 for second prize. Alexander Alekhine 2.5 behind him finished third and $750. A point behind him was Frank Marshall with a score of 11 and $500. Finishing fifth was Richard Reti a half point behind and $250. Geza Maroczy finishing just out of the money was sixth with a score of 10. Finishing in descending order was Bogolyubov, Tartakover, Yates, Edward Lasker and Janowski Condition: Corners bumped and rubbed, front hinge beginning, previous owner's name on front paste down. A good to very good copy issued in stiff boards. Seller Inventory # BOOKS003623

About this Item: Verlag Walter de Gruyter & Co, Berlin, 1942. Original Wrappers. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 140+[4 ad] pages with cross-tables, diagrams and pictures. Octavo (8" x 5½") issued in original wrappers. Bu cherei des Grossdeutschen schachbundes, Book 9. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:5627) First edition. The second Europaturnier (the first one took place in Stuttgart in May 1939) was held in Munich in 8-14 September 1941. The event was organised by Ehrhardt Post, the Chief Executive of Nazi Grossdeutscher Schachbund and was a 16 person round robin event. Max Euwe had declined the invitation for München 1941 due to his "occupational obligations", as manager of a groceries business. This time he refused to participate, because Alexander Alekhine was invited. Euwe mentioned futile reasons. The real motive was Alekhine’s offence of Euwe in his antisemitic articles. Alekhine wrote six Nazi articles which first appeared in the Paris newspaper Pariser Zeitung in March 1941. He wrote a series of articles for Die Deutsche Zeitung in den Niederlanden called "Jewish and Aryan Chess." The articles were reproduced in Deutsch Schachzeitung. Among others, Alekhine had written about the "Jewish clique" around Euwe in World Chess Championship 1935. The event was won by Gösta Stoltz, who scored a spectacular victory (1½ points ahead of Alekhine and Erik Lundin), and won 1,000 Reichsmarks. His trophy (donated by the Ministerpräsident Ludwig Siebert) of Meissen porcelain is worth close to $1,000. Alexander Alekhine and Erik Lundin tied for second through third with 10½ points. Efim Bogoljubow captured fourth with a score of 9½. Bjørn Nielsen and Kurt Richter tied for fifth through sixth with scores of 9. Jan Foltys was clear seventh with 9 points.

About this Item: American Chess Bulletin/Printing Craft, Ltd, New York and London, 1925. Full-Leather. Condition: Very Good to Fine. First Edition. xxiv+273+[is errata] pages with frontispiece and 13 portraits of the players and orginizers of the tournament, diagrams, tables numerous plates. Royal octavo. Bound in burgundy with black lettering to spine and cover. Edited by Hermann Helms. Annotations by Alexander Alekhine. (Betts: 25-73) 1st American edition. In 1924 New York staged a great tournament by having the three giants of the age: Capablanca, Lasker and Alekhine. It was something like a rematch of the 1914 St Petersburg tournament, with all of them 10 years older. There was a good mixture of veterans (Janowski, Marcozy and Marshall) with younger hypermoderns (Reti, Tartakower and Bogoljubow), though some top challengers (Vidmar, Nimzowitsch and Rubinstein) were absent. Everyone expected World Champion Capablanca to win and wondered how Lasker, the 55 year old dethroned lion would perform. Lasker ran away with the tournament, scoring a phenomenal 80% against the elite of the chess world. Brilliancy prizes went to Reti for his win over Bogoljubow, Marshall for his win over Bogolijubow and to Capablanca for his win over Lasker. There are some mistakes but this is probably the best tournament book written, rivaled only by Bronstein's Zurich 1953. Condition: Attractively rebound in burgundy with black lettering to spine and cover. A very good to fine copy. Seller Inventory # C0223

About this Item: Schachvereines Herausgegeben von L Toth, Kecskemét, 1928. Three-Quarter Leather. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. xvi+158 pages with diagrams, tables and 4 plates. Royal octavo (9 1/4" x 6 1/2") bound in 3/4 leather with marbled boards. Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 5405) 1st edition. This tournament (June-July 1927) was unique in being the only important post-First World War contest played on the discredited group system. The twenty players were divided into two groups of ten each, the first four in each group qualifying for the A final, the next four for the B final and the last two dropping out. As in St Petersburg 1914 thinks did not work out according to the preconceived notions and two grandmasters, Tartakower and Grunfeld, failed to make the top final. Alekhine dominated group A, conceding draws only to Gilg and Kmoch; in B his feat was duplicated not, as expected, by Nimzowitsch, but by Lajos Steiner, who drew with Ahues and Nimzowitsch and won the rest. The scores from the qualifying groups were carried to the finals. In these finals Alekhine won only one game, drawing six and just scraped home from Nomzowitsch and Steiner, who tied for second. The full results were as follows: Group A: Alexander Alekhine (8); Lajos Asztalos and Hans Kmoch (6); Karl Gilg (5 1/2); Johann Takacs and Savielly Tartakower (4 1/2); Wilhelm Brinkmann (3 1/2); Frederick D Yates (3); Hans Müller (2 1/2); Ladislav Sarkozy(2). Group B: Lajos Steiner (9); Aron Nimzowitsch (6 1/2); Karl Ahues, Arpad Vajda and Edgard Colle (5); Ernst Grünfeld (4 1/2); Vladimir Vukovic' (3 1/2); Karl Berndtsson, Dawid Przepiórka and Jeno Szekely (2 1/2). Top Finals: Alekhine (12); Nimzowitsch and Steiner (11 1/2); Asztalos (9 1/2); Ahues, Kmoch and Vajda (8 1/2); Gilg (8). B Finals: Tartakower (9 1/2); Grungeld (8 1/2); Takacs and Yates (8); Berndtsson (7); Brinckmann, Colle and Vukovic (6). Condition: Extremities rubbed, title foxed else a very good copy.
