Schachgesellschaft Zürich:


"Richard Forster, who was born in 1975, is an International Master. His chess biography "Amos Burn", published in 2004, received critical acclaim all over the world. His new 576-page work, "Schachgesellschaft Zürich. 1809 bis 2009" required several years' meticulous research. He recounts two centuries of chess in Zurich and, more generally, in Switzerland, whilst focussing on the milestones in the history of the Zurich Chess Club. In addition to containing many games, the book is illustrated with numerous pictures and charts.


Since 2011 there is a short version of the Jubelee Book available also in English: «The Zurich Chess Club, 1809-2009»."




"Founded in 1809, the Zurich Chess Club is the world’s oldest chess organization. Throughout its two centuries of existence it has been a meeting point for many remarkable personalities in the fields of art, literature, science, economy, politics and chess. This historical text examines how the club, a driving force behind Swiss chess, also became a major player on the international chess scene. Topics covered include the storied development of the club, its outstanding members and its memorable activities. Its historical tournaments are covered in-depth, including such competitions as those held in 1934 (Lasker, Alekhine, Euwe), 1953 (Smyslov, Bronstein, Reshevsky) and 1959 (Tal, Fischer, Keres). The tournament history culminates in the spectacular bicentenary celebrations in summer 2009, featuring the world champions Spassky, Karpov, Kasparov, Kramnik, Anand and Topalov."
