VOLUME ONE ONLY. LIMITED EDITION OF 1500 COPIES. The first part of three-volume manual is addressed to those who want either to learn or to perfect themselves in the game of chess, while the ultimate aim of this volume is to prepare players with ELO training up to 1800. The author - Mikhail Tal (1936-1992)- was a Soviet Latvian chess Grandmaster and the eighth World Chess Champion (from 1960 to 1961), widely regarded as a creative genius and the best attacking player of all time who still holds the records for both the first and second longest unbeaten streaks in competitive chess history. His play was known above all for improvisation and unpredictability - as he once said, for him every game was as inimitable and invaluable as a poem. Both `The Mammoth Book of the World`s Greatest Chess Games` and `Modern Chess Brilliancies` include more games by Tal than any other player. In addition, Tal was a highly regarded chess writer, as illustrated by this manual. The manual contains 75 lessons and is divided into five parts: I.Chess Fundamentals; II.Realization of Big Material Advantage; III.Elements of Chess Game; IV. The Rules of Pawn the Endings; V.Fundamentals of Chess Tactics; VI.Realization of Material and Positional Advantage; VII.Solutions. Index of Players. Index of Composers. Index of Openings. Code System. 300x215mm. 273 pages. Cover slightly curved and slightly stained. Cover corners/edges and spine edges bumped. Title page and several first pages upper corner wrinkled. Tiny stain on title page. [SUMMARY]: This extremely rare and influential chess manual written by one of the greatest players in the history of chess is in good condition.
