  Benzol: <Honza> Shouldn't this be game 38 and not 39 of your collection?

  Benzol: <Honza> Although I haven't finished going through your entire collection yet I can tell you that your Russian edition seems to be far more complete than my English one. So far I've found that from your collection mine is missing games 45, 47, 55, 56 and 57 and I feel sure there will be others. The above game fragment vesus Bernhard Ritcher is also absent. However, my collection has an 1894 match vesus Carl Walbrodt (8 games) and 13 games from the Leipzig Tournament of 1894. I'm beginning to think the English translation is a bit of a "rip-off". I wonder whether anyone else could shed light on these anomolies?

  Honza Cervenka: <Benzol> There can be more than one edition of the book. Russian edition (published by Fizkultura i sport, Moscow, 1988), which I have, is a V. I. Murakhveri's translation of the book published by Verlag von Veit und Comp., Leipzig, 1895. By the way, the Russian edition contains also three games from Leipzig 1894 (Tarrasch's games against Von Scheve, Schlechter and Pillsbury) with Tarrasch's annotations, but not as part of Dreihundert Schachpartien. It was an attached excerpt from Tarrasch's book "The Chess" published in 1931. But I think that it is quite possible that Dr. Tarrasch had made some changes for any latter edition of Dreihundert Schachpartien and that he also included (very important) games from the tournament in Leipzig and the match with Walbrodt. At once he could also ommit some other games published earlier for the sake of consistency with the title of the book.
