DESCRIPTION

"SCHACHPROBLEME. WEIẞ: DAME UND EIN LÄUFER"

A. C. WHITE "CHRISTMAS SERIES" VOL. XIV

By Dr. Emil Palkoska and Alain C. White (1911)

 

Palkoska, Dr. Emil / White, Alain C.: "Schachprobleme. Weiß: Dame und ein Läufer". Eine Aufgaben-Sammlung von Dr. Emil Palkoska und Alain C. White unter Mitwirkung von H. Staerker. Mit zahlreichen Diagrammen.

Leipzig, Verlag von Veit & Comp., 1911. Private half leather binding with gold-embossed print on spine. XVI + 176 pages, without Christmas wish slip by White, as usual in this Title (perhaps this Title was published without it, because I have not seen ever it in this Title, in almost 10 lots of different auctions). 21 x 14,7 cm. In German.

 

Good: Some defects. General foxing, more pronounced in some pages. To know the approximate condition, please see the photos. All the major defects are photographed.

 

Linde - N. 2612; Whyld 14.

 

TITLE 14 of the famous A.C. WHITE "CHRISTMAS SERIES". Palkoskas introduction to the theme and 600 problems by various authors, sorted by motifs. White material is limited to King, Queen and Bishop, usually with Pawns, too.

 

The popular series ran from 1905 through 1936. Publisher of the series was chess composer and enthusiast Alain Campbell White (1880-1951). A. C. White sent most books of the series to his friends as Christmas gifts. But they were offered for sale, too. The series consists from 44 books on problem chess and one pamphlet from 1912. Most books are hard covers, bound in red cloth with gold lettering, usually written in English, sometimes in German and French and one was partially in Czech. Most books have printed Christmas wish slip by White, usually bound in after a title page. It appears that a part of edition of some books has wish slips and a part does not. Number of copies published of separate volumes is not known.

 

In my current auction are listed 30 titles (in 31 books, and only 1 of them in facsimile edition) of the A.C. WHITE "CHRISTMAS SERIES"!! Please see my other items, and don't miss the opportunity to complete your collection of this famous series.
