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:

http://chs119.chs.harvard.edu/venic...

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

http://books.google.com/books?id=0C...

Lasker's book on St. Petersburg 1909

http://www.google.com/books?id=o3eC...

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

https://books.google.com/books?id=9...

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."

--AgentRgent

"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."

--vsaluki

Of course the Fried Liver is unsound. Everybody knows that, especially once they get home and fire up Fritzy and his Friends. Alas, before the post mortem the gods have placed the game.

--Phony Benoni (commenting on a Shirov game)

  keypusher: keypusher: Thanks, Shams. When I got the Iliad and Odyssey I bought the Oxford editions, because I didn't want the English on the facing page (and I liked the pale blue dust jackets). Overambitious, and they've completely fallen apart too. Maybe I'll get the Loebs.

  Chessical: <Keypusher> I would like to have the Chigorin - Gunsberg Match (1890) included in the Tournament Index. I note, however, that you have already assembled the games so you have precedence.

Is this currently an on-going project for you? If it is not may I write it up for submission? If you wish, it could be a joint enterprise.

Regards, Chessical.

Thank you for agreeing to allow me to clone your collection.

I'll give you a name I like-- Tibor Fischer. Either "The Collector Collector" or "The Thought Gang" are a lot of fun. The guy can really write but there's not a trace anywhere in those books of a writer desperate for literary immortality. English novelists tend to be much better about that anyway. Another, maybe even better example is Magnus Mills' dark comic novella "The Restraint of Beasts". What a trifle, but a miracle of sly suggestion. Any one of those three books I'd recommend to you, with a slight lean towards Collector Collector because of your interest in history.
