A must for the true book collector!
And that’s not all! Alekhine on the Nottingham 1936 tournament, in Russian! Edward Lasker’s classic Chess Strategy, 1917, (2nd Ed), a book so bizarre his name is printed Edouard on the inside cover!
Some interesting facts about Edward Lasker: a) There is controversy if he was actually distantly related to ex-World Champion Emanuel Lasker (source: Edward Winter <— pointed out by ICC’s Naisortep) Edward’s memoirs suggest they are, distantly) and b) Edward invented the breast pump, making him oodles of money!
I am still not clear on exactly how the two Laskers were related – distant cousins?
Take a look at these ueber-rare books. The collector might salivate, Pavlovian-style.
