Dec-09-07  Karpova: Some information on Watts - a chessplayer and publisher: (scroll down to 5316)

He died in 1941, he was the owner of Printing-Craft Ltd. and published Emanuel Lasker's <Chess Manual – other outstanding books printed and edited by Watts were London, 1922 and Nottingham, 1936 with their splendid pictorial Chess Pies, Alekhine v Bogoljubow 1934 and Morphy Gleanings by Sergeant. On top of this he produced and edited for two years (1924-26) a paperback periodical which might be called the forerunner of Newsflash. It was named the Chess Budget and came out weekly (monthly in the summer) with the full scores of all London League and County Matches, together with “the latest news, games, and occasional articles”>

He was a strong chessplayer also.
