Chess Potpourri :

Klahre, Alfred C. Chess Potpourri. "A Little of This and a Little of That." A mixture of chessic information, comprising "Morals of Chess" by Benjamin Franklin; "Chess in Hades" by Daniel Willard Fiske; Anecdotes, Witticisms, etc .; a selection of unusual and entertaining chess - problem fantasies, and concluding with "Various References to Chess". Brooklyn 1931. 8 °. With 5 pictures in the text and 20 diagrams. 55 pages. Original red linen ribbon with gold embossed illustrations on lids. (38) * Linde - N. 293; Betts 43 - 45. "Chiefly a miscellany of articles and extracts from chess literature ... The section on chess references contains a partial list of periodical and other references, 1697 - 1931." (Betts) 

Condition : Binding with slight wear. Former owner name and a stamp on first endpaper. Very slight and tiny soil on title page (see picture). Otherwise very nice and clean. Overall Assessment = Very Good!

Postage EUR (insurance included) : Austria € 3,90; Germany € 9,90; other EU countries € 12,90; Non-EU countries please ask

I combine shipping – you always pay just real postage! The packing materials are free.

I send with the so called "Paketmarke" (for further information which is in general the most cost effective and reliable way to send parcels in Austria. One feature is that the shipment costs are defined via the the longest and the shortest side of the parcel. The weight isn´t important although it is limited to 31,5 kg. The parcel is also insured up to € 500,-.

  1. PM 045 = longest and the shortest side of the parcel are added max. 45 cm) GER=€9,90, other EU = €12,90
  2. PM 070 = longest and the shortest side of the parcel are added max. 70 cm) GER=€14,90, other EU = €17,90
  3. PM 120 = longest and the shortest side of the parcel are added max. 120 cm) GER=€19,90, other EU = €22,90

Therefore if you win more than 1 lot and the books fit into the same parcel, the shipment costs will be the same as for 1 book. 

Important : Please wait with payment until you get my confirmation email, as the shipping costs have to be calculated.
