Keene, Raymond (Introduction),
ISBN: 0192175661
Book Number: 0115590
University Press, Oxford, 1980. Softcover. Very Good Condition/. First Edition. introduction by Raymond Keene, in English, German, French, Russian (and two other languages I'm unfamiliar with), which is also true of the part dealing with Fischer's Tournament and Match Record, on how to use the book and symbols used within the book. At the end of the book is a list of players. Photographic card cover, showing Bobby Fischer, with pale gold and gold coloured titles to the front panel and pale gold coloured titles to the backstrip. "Robert James Fischer is perhaps the most controversial, the most written-about and most talented chess-player of all time. But he has not played a serious game since the notorious match with Boris Spassky at Reykjavik in 1972 when he won by 12 1/2-8 1/2 to become the first player from the United States to win the World Championship. Whether or not Bobby Fischer emerges to play again, his games will survive as a monument to his skill and, in particular, to a style which demonstrates so clearly the player's intense will to win. With the exception of the introduction the entire work is languageless because it is printed in figurine algebraic notation of the form approved by the World Chess Federation with internationally accepted symbol is explained in a number of important languages."
