About This Item

New York: Simon & Schuster, 1968. First edition of this classic work, which is regarded as one of the great pieces of chess literature. Octavo, original half cloth. Boldly signed by Bobby Fischer and Larry Evans on the front free endpaper. Introduction by Grandmaster Larry Evans. Fine in a near fine dust jacket, review copy with the slip to the front pastedown. Jacket design by Carl Smith. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example, we have never seen another example signed by these two legendary grandmasters. From the library of Fischer's coach William Lombardy. One of the most historically significant chess books written, My 60 Memorable Games is an enhancement of the original title, Bobby Fischer's Games of Chess. It is improved with even more game reviews, and it is written at a later point in Fischer's chess career from which he gives even greater insight.

Synopsis

One of the most important chess books ever written, reissued in celebration of a chess genius, Bobby Fischer. The American takes the reader through 60 of his games, describing his thoughts, the intricacies behind his and his opponent's strategies, the tactical justification of moves and the psychological battle in each one. You ll find beautifully simple positional play next to out-of-this-world combinations that are just breathtaking. Fischer played nearly all of these games as a grandmaster so they are at the very highest level, but his lucid commentary makes every move and idea both accessible and understandable. Every player will learn huge amounts from this book. It is essential for each chess enthusiast, competitor and professional. The controversial alterations that were made to Bobby Fischer's words in the last edition have been omitted in this book, so only the author's own words are expressed, giving a true insight into one of the most gifted, troubled and controversial minds of the 20th century. Includes index.
