The author writes in his preface: "It is my sincere hope that just as these endings have given me pleasure and helped me to improve my end-game play, they will have the same effect on the reader. I shall be well repaid if I have brought the reader closer to the art of Alekhine and Morphy, of Lasker and Tarrasch and the other great masters; for then I shall have helped the reader to become a better end-game player, which is to say a better chess player. I shall have increased the magic power of the thirty-two pieces and the sixty-four squares to make him happy." Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 177 pages. Fading to spine colour.
