The Perseus Project: The classics in Greek, Latin & English--hyperlinked

A page from the Venetus A, the oldest complete manuscript of the Iliad, courtesy of Harvard's Multitext Library:

From Google Books, a link to Tarrasch's book on the 1908 world championship. I've translated his notes on the game pages.

Lasker's book on St. Petersburg 1909

Tarrasch's <Dreihundert Schachpartien>, which covers his career from the beginning through his match with Chigorin in 1893

Chess-play is a good and witty exercise of the mind for some kind of men, and fit for such melancholy, Rhasis holds, as are idle, and have extravagant impertinent thoughts, or troubled with cares, nothing better to distract their mind, and alter their meditations; invented (some say) by the general of an army in famine, to keep soldiers from mutiny: but if it proceed from overmuch study, in such case it may do more harm than good; it is a game too troublesome for some men's brains, too full of anxiety, all out as bad as study; besides it is a testy choleric game, and very offensive to him that loseth the mate. William the Conquerer, in his younger years, playing at chess with the Prince of France (Dauphine was not annexed to that crown in those days) losing a mate, knocked the chess-board about his pate, which was a cause afterwards of much enmity between them.

--Burton, The Anatomy of Melancholy

"Just because many great chess players were obnoxious jerks, doesn't mean that if you're an obnoxious jerk you're a great chess player."


"You are also a machine, as are Anand, Carlsen, Kasparov, and Fischer. You and the others are just inferior machines. Your idea of beautiful chess is simply faulty chess that is not caught in its faults."


"Alas, before the post mortem the gods have placed the game."

--Phony Benoni

"A chess engine is a great antidote to human optimism."

keypusher: <bubo bubo> I agree with you about Morphy -- he belonged in there. I probably would have gone with Morphy vs Harrwitz, 1858 but of course your choice is also a great game. My own quarrel with the NBE is I think they neglected defense in favor of the attack. I wouldn't have ...

keypusher: <He reverted to Nf3 in a simul game that transposed after 8....Bc5 9.d3 h6 10.Nf3> is a dumb thing to say, because if Black lets you get in 9.d3 why wouldn't you play 10.Nf3?

  zborris8: Hello, <keypusher>: The invitation has been sent for the CG Tournament I on GameKnot.
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: <zborris> thanks.

<ughaibu: Looking up your friend Burton, I find "he received the first rudiments of learning at the free school of Sutton Coldfield". You know the only other interesting fact about Sutton Coldfield? It was from thence that the magazine Chess issued.>

Who knew? I wonder if you put every issue of <Chess> together you'd get as many words as were in <Anatomy of Melancholy>.

Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: <madlydeeply> Kasparov is a millionaire who's held on to his money...Karpov is a billionnaire according to some, despite having a face like a pencil sharpener and a body like Stephen Hawking. I don't think you can infer PR from wealth.
Premium Chessgames Member
  keypusher: <madly deeply> I enjoy your posts, by the way. Didn't you clobber me on gameknot a few years ago?
Mar-31-18  madlydeeply: maybe we played on gameknot. I just play hundreds of lichess games nowadays. so easy. i guess they are all millionares. Kaspy was good at making money, of course. I'm still upset that he didn't play shirov! maybe i should let that go....

Well, maybe you clobbered me on some other site. Nothing wrong with being mad about Kasparov stiffing Shirov...

<chancho> Thanks, I look forward to watching.

Apr-04-18  madlydeeply: That could have been Shirov's buster douglas moment! anyway Kasparov was exposed at that st louis quad a few years ago... he did ok on the first day... with his meticulously prepared openings.. but then Naka, So and Fab did exactly one night of computer homework and busted them all. Kasparov owns the 80s-90s just like Fischer owns 1972
