Oldies
Compiled by jstufflebean

Historical chess games, like old music scores or the written works of the past, fascinate me. In the case of chess, what can these older battles teach us about the mind of, say, the 15th century player and the player of the present age. What can the comparison between past players and contemporary players tell us about "man" as such? Was the method of calculation or system of value, in psychological terms, different then than it is now? Perhaps these questions are absurd or elementary, but I suppose I'm ignorant as to what "man" is and thus at once the profound and mundane details which decorate our past interest me.

Perhaps the very first game of modern chess.
