More information can be found at, which describes in detail all the books written by Harrie Grondijs. Description of this book can be found here:

Harrie Grondijs wrote many books, his favorite themes are the endgame studies and the history of chess. His books are of high quality regarding both the content and form. Most of his works are published in low editions, usually numbered and signed by the author - this is a reason why Grondijs books almost do not appear in the market.

Condition: Bottom of the spine is slightly bumped with little effect to the dustcover as well. Overall Assessment = Very Good! 

Postage EUR (insurance included): Non-EU countries please ask! I try to choose the most cost-effective yet reliable way.

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 to Austria. One feature is that the shipment costs are defined via the longest and the shortest side of the parcel. The weight is limited to 10 kg. The parcel is also insured up to € 500,-.

  1. PM 045 = longest and the shortest side of the parcel is added max. 45 cm) GER=€10,79, other EU = €14,19
  2. PM 070 = longest and the shortest side of the parcel is added max. 70 cm) GER=€16,24, other EU = €19,69
  3. PM 120 = longest and the shortest side of the parcel are added max. 120 cm) GER=€21,69, other EU = €25,19

Therefore if you win more than 1 lot and the books fit into the same parcel, the shipping 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.

P.S.: Bibliographical data and description taken from the initial lot by Mr Karel Mokry.
