Signed and limited to 500 copies of which this is number 26. (Limited edition not in Betts) First edition. Fine had an exceptionally brief but fruitful international career before changing from grandmaster to psychiatrist. Within three years, 1935-8, he developed from an unknown American master into co-winner of AVRO 1938, one of the highest-rated events ever held. Yet when chess revived after the second World War Fine was too busy with his studies to accept an invitation to the World Championship tournament of 1948. After AVRO 1938. Fine concentrated on writing chess books. Altogether he wrote more than a dozen works. (Golombek: 116p) Condition: Previous owner's name in pencil limitation page else a very good to fine copy.

Mark to top edge of spine of cloth. Wear and browning to D/J. Small piece of D/J. missing from top edge of spine. It has been said that it is the end-game in Chess which particularly distinguiches the master-player's technique from that of even the best of ordinary players; and this essentially practical guide to end-game play may claim to be one of the few indispensable books of instruction and reference for serious students of Chess. The book covers every phase of the end-game: it has no problems or tricky positions, and everything in it is of immediate practical value. It instructs the player as to what to do, and how and why; and in addition to presenting specific typical positions, it lays down many invaluable general principles applicable to all tyoes of end-games. Contents: Preface. Introduction. Bibliography. The Elementary Mates. King and Pawn Endings. Knight and Pawn Endings. Bishop and Pawn Endings. Minor Piece Endings. Rook and Pawn Endings.
