DESCRIPTION

Monte. The Classical Era of Modern Chess.

First introduced by Arabs to newly gained territories in the Mediterranean during the 8th and 9th centuries, the game of chess soon spread throughout Europe, slowly evolving from the less dynamic shatranj version into modern chess. This study examines the classical era of what became modern chess from the late 15th century into the 1640s, paying special attention to key developments in the medieval period and later. After tracing the birth of modern chess in Europe, it offers a critical appreciation of relevant chess literature—including works by von der Lasa, van der Linde, Murray, Chicco, Eales, Petzold, Sanvito, Garzón and many others—and chronicles all openings and games of the era and the long drawn-out development of laws and rules like “en passant” taking and castlings. At 616 pages, with a glossary, appendices, bibliography, an exhaustive index and more than 150 illustrations, this is the definitive overview of a transformative era in the history of chess.

Black hardback. Pages: 616. Bibliographic Info: 155 illustrations, glossary, appendices, bibliography, index.
