50 Great Games of Chess, by Harry Golombek
Compiled by LIFE Master AJ
--*--

"Fifty Great Games of Modern Chess." By GM Harry Golobek.

There are some really outstanding games in this book, I think that they represent some of the finest chess of that period. (If the book has a flaw, it is that it is in the older ESDN.)

A small book, published with fifty of the better games from 1900 to 1940. ISBN # 1-84382-067-6. (My copy is not an original, although I saw one in a library once. My copy is a fairly recent reprint.)

The nice thing about this is that many of the games are very famous and already have annotations embedded on the actual CB page.

Game #14, Tartakower win over Maroczy is one of my absolute favorite games of this collection.
