Karpova: Some information on Hermann von Gottschall:
He corresponded with the then twelfth year old Richard Reti as Edward Winter's article "The Réti Brothers" shows:
<One day in the midst of this summer tranquillity a letter arrived addressed to Richard from Über Land und Meer, a then popular illustrated weekly in nineteenth-century style, to which we subscribed and in which a man named Gottschall ran a little chess column. Rather puzzled by the correspondence between the magazine and the 12-year-old boy, we learned that non-talkative Richard – of course in utmost secrecy – had submitted a chess problem to Mr Gottschall. Here was the answer:
“Your problem is gratefully accepted and will be published in one of our next columns. And I wish to add that if it is really true that you are only 12 years of age, as you wrote, and nobody helped you with the problem, let me congratulate you wholeheartedly. This is quite an exceptional achievement, which should encourage you to continue your work in chess with all seriousness. Personal greetings, Gottschall.”>
From Edward Winter's "Chess and Women" (2004) we learn: <‘Das Schachspiel und die Frauen’ by H. von Gottschall in the May 1893 Deutsche Schachzeitung (pages 129-133). One of the more sympathetic articles on the subject published in the nineteenth century.>
Sadly, the article is not given.
He wrote a monograph Adolf Anderssen as C.N. 3412 says.
He lived: <von Gottschall, H.: Elisabethstrasse 2, Görlitz, Germany ("Wiener Schachzeitung", July 1904, page 211).>
C.N. 4423 mentions analysis by Fischer correcting Von Gottschall's one (there's a picture of the paragraphs from Fischer and Von Gottschall).
C.N. 3570 shows a picture from Coburg 1904 where you can see Von Gottschall.
