LASKER, EMANUEL - Lasker's Chess Manual

Title: Lasker's Chess Manual
Description: The Printing-Craft Ltd., London, 1932. First edition. Octavo; hardcover, with gilt upper board and spine titling, with decorative endpapers; 349pp., with 308 monochrome illustrations. Repaired: front and rear joints have been sympathetically repaired; presentation plate on first blank leaf; preliminaries and text block edges toned and spotted; binding very slightly rolled. Price-clipped dustwrapper toned and spotted with chipping and creasing to head and tail of spine; tear in lower edge of rear panel; some scuffing and slight wear to edges; now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film. Very good. This chess manual has long been considered one of the most significant works on chess ever written. Lasker takes prospective chess players through six chapters (or books) of chess lessons, beginning with the bare minimum required to play the game, but quickly introducing more advanced topics. Lasker's Manual is presented in a unique style and has great historical significance. Typical for Lasker, the focus is on general principles that can be used in a variety of situations, rather than lengthy analysis of a single line or position. Openings, combinations, positional play, 'aesthetics' and example games are all covered in good depth. Even 82 years after its initial publication, Lasker's Manual of Chess is still an excellent instructional text and deserves a place in every chess library.
