Volume 1 No. 1 Quarterly for chess history. Volume 1, No. 1, Spring 1999, Olomouc 1999, 312pp.
"Christmas has come early for chess historians / this quaint hardcover labour of love by Dr Fiala, Czech publisher, editor and distributor, is packed with original research. It kicks off with a 31/page feature on Pillsbury's 1902 simultaneous tour of Great Britain, followed by biographical pieces on Rudolf Spielmann, Paul Saladin Leonhardt and Richard Teichmann. The main feauture is in ""forgotten"" tiurnaments, and stars a lengthly annotated report of Nice 1930 (won by Tartakower). There follows a fascinating account of a little known Alekhine visit and match in San Juan 1933. Whilst the quality of the written English is wildly variable throughout, the prose remains remarkably eloquent one can easily forgive a few creative spellings to an author whose passion for chess research shines on every page. It is hard to believe that such scholarely material can be amassed on a quarterly basis in future, as optimistically promised, but this initial volume is a treasure trove to savour"" (Reviewed by BCM, September 1999) 312 pages" (EUR 29.00)

Volume 1 No. 2 Quarterly for chess history, Volume 1, No. 2, Summer 1999, Olomouc 2000, 536pp
This is the second edition of the new chess historical journal and, like the first, filled with the fascinating results of Vlastimil Fiala's original and scholarly research. As hinted in the earlier review, the proposed interval for publication has proved optimistic, but this has been largely as the result of the monumental amounts of material made available. Given the huge overall number of pages, the editor can afford to give over vast amounts of space to each of his subjects. Capablanca's simultaneous tour of the UK in 1919/20 is spread over 159 pages, and a full report of the 26-round Monte Carlo tournament of 1903 (where Colonel Moreau scored his famous 0/26) runs to 161 pages. There are 325 Max Euwe games from the period 1911-22. The book also contains biographies of Alapin, von Bardeleben and Mieses, thee Marshall maches from 1902, in-depth book reviews, an article by Ken Whyld on rediscovered Lasker games, and John Hilbert on chess in Philadelphia. A must for the chess historian.(Reviewed by BCM) 536 pages. (EUR 29.00)
