The Modern Chess Instructor. Part I :

by W. Steinitz. The modern chess instructor. Part I (of 2). New York / London, Putnam, 1889. 8 °. With many diagrams. 1 sheet, XLI, 193 pages, 2 sheets blank. Original publisher binding with gold decorated chessboard on front cover. Linde - N. 1059; Betts 14 - 1. Wilhelm Steinitz regarded the new doctrine of the positional play, which he had justifiedly stated, as his life's work. In the main part of the first volume are various openings (including Ruy Lopez, Philidor defense) presented in tabular form. These are illustrated with games, notes and diagrams. Finally, games of the Steinitz - Chigorin competition are analyzed. 

Condition : Cover shows some slight wear. Corners bumped. Spine with some chippings on upper part. Some neatly written marginalia in the contents part with black ink. Only very few marginalia with pencil, which can be erased. Otherwise inside nice and clean. Overall Assessment = 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.
