Vol. 1 (September 1879- August 1880) The Chess Monthly (Edited by Zukertort & Hoffer), Vol. I, September 1879 - August 1880
Leopold Hoffer was editor of this periodical, but co-editor Zukertort added greatly to its prestige. The lay-out has a more modern look and feel than earlier 19th century periodicals, with many excellent annotations, thorough coverage of news from around the world, plus book reviews and an endgame column by Horwitz 384 pages. (EUR 29.00)

Vol. 2 (September 1880 - August 1881) The Chess Monthly (Edited by Zukertort & Hoffer), Vol. II, September 1880 - August 1881
A fascimile reprint of the second volume of Hoffer and Zukertort's new periodical, which was soon to run into stiff opposition in the shape of the British Chess Magazine, whose launch was generously announced on page 167. BCM was referred to as "an enlarged continuation of the Chess Department of the late Huddersfield College Magazine". But Hoffer could not resists a dig: "We will, there fore, refrain from expressing our opinion. The only question we may ask at present is, why such a deal of space is wasted with enormous diagrams on small pages illustrating an indifferent positions?". (Reviewed by BCM). 382 pages, (EUR 29.00)

Vol. 3 (September 1881 - August 1882) The Chess Monthly (Edited by Zukertort & Hoffer), Vol. III, September 1881 - August 1882
The third volume kicks off with some wonderful bickering. Editor Leopold Hoffer lambasts the chess editor of the Illustrated London News (who, though unnamed here, was PT Duffy). Answering a reader's query about English chess periodicals, Duffy responded: "There is only one English chess monthly we know of - the British Chess Magazine." The ILN is then reported as compounding the felony by claiming to "know nothing of Mr Hoffer", going on to be very rude about The Chess Monthly. Though named in dispatches, the BCM seems to emerge unscathed from the cross-fire. Thereafter Hoffer and Zukertort were embroiled in a much more protracted antagonism with the editopr of the Field, Wilhelm Steinitz, who took exception to criticism of his annotations of a match between Zukertort and Blackburne. The backbiting and provocation, always expressed in the most grandiloquent tones, continue in every issue to the end of the year. Wonderful stuff - but thank heavens modern-day chess editors are not obliged to behave like this. (Reviewed by BCM). 382 pages, (EUR 29.00)

Vol. 4 (September 1882 - August 1883) The Chess Monthly (dited by Zukertort & Hoffer) Vol. IV, September 1882 - August 1883
The September 1882 issue informed visitors to Hastings that they would find the newly-established Chess Club at the Seaside Hotel on Friday afternoons. There is further wrangling between Steinitz and both Zukertort and Mason over proposed matches. The year starts with reflections of the great Vienna tournament of 1882 and year ends with Zukertort's win in the London tournament of 1883 (Reviewed by BCM). 382 pages, (EUR 29.00)
