On the occasion of his 70th birthday, David Bronstein wrote:

Chess on the highest level is not only a board game. It is much more. It is part of human civilization. Both Dr.Emanuel Lasker and Dr Max Euwe have described chess mainly as a fight. Also, it is interesting to study how a man thinks during a game of chess. I think that I made a substantial contribution to chess science when I started to take note of the times taken for each move by both players. I think that I have cemented a few bricks in the house of chess psychology by creating the phenomenon of time graphs. If interpreted correctly, they give tremendous insight into the human character. Further I believe that my work as a journalist is as important as my games. Finally I am proud of the fact that I am not known for fights off the chessboard but only on it.

On offer are sixteen of these Time Graphs: approximately A3-sized papers containing a hand-drawn coloured graph of time use in games of famous players such as Botwinnik, Petrosjan, Larsen, and of course Bronstein himself. Two of them also include Bronstein's original score sheet showing the time used for each move.

Note: the images show only part of each paper due to constraints imposed by the size of my scanner.

Additional information and images available on request.
