DESCRIPTION

The City of London Chess Magazine 1874 - Vol 1 :

The City of London Chess Magazine edited by W. N. Potter. Published by Morgan und Longmans, Green, London 1874. 8°, with some diagrams. 288 pages as only the 1874 issues till number 11 are included. Present: 1st year, February 1874 - December 1874. In my opinion this makes sense, I wouldn´t have bound in a January 1875 issue either. Rare English chess magazine to its employees u. a. Bird, Blackburne, Horwitz, Löwenthal, Steinitz, Whisker and Zukertort counted. Original publisher binding in tree quarter leather with gilt title on spine.

Condition : Binding shows some wear. Title page, index and preface are missing as these were published 1875. Copy of these 4 pages included. A few issues with a slight vertical crease due mailing. 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 https://www.post.at/privat_versenden_paket_paketmarke.php) 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.
