Gustaf Alfred Gabriel Collijn was a younger brother of chess patron Ludvig Collijn. Author, theatre director, and his whole life a chess enthusiast. Inspired by a trip to Europe (Vienna) in 1896, he and his brother authored Lärobok i Schack (Manual of Chess) (1898) which with its later editions became a standard work for Scandinavian players (notably the 1921 ed. with its 541 pages). A celebrity at every major chess event in Sweden.
