17 unpaginated daily bulletins, each 8 to 10 pages. Octavo (8" x 5 1/2") issued in wrappers. First edition.

Mar del Plata has a rich history of chess tournaments, including their international chess tournament and open tournament. There is also an annual city tournament, which had its first edition in 1946, and reached its 62nd edition in 2007. The international tournament started off in 1928, but only in the period from 1941 to 1970 was it a truly international tournament with considerable reputation. After 1970, only seven international tournaments have been played.[1] The 1951, 1954, 1969 and 2001 editions were zonal tournaments. The 1957 contest was held at the Hotel Provincial in Mar del Plata. and is part of an iconic beachfront complex, built in 1946 by the celebrated architect Alejandro Bustillo. Eighteen contenders battled for the trophy and placed in descending order: Paul Keres from Estonia first with a full point over Miguel Nadjorf of the host country with 15. Alexander Kotov from the Soviet Union and Oscar Panno from Argentina tied for third and fourth at 13. William Lombardy from the United States captured clear fifth 11.5. Raul Sanguinetti was a point behind him in sixth. Miguel Cuellar Gacharna of Colombia scored 8.5 for clear seventh. Eighth, ninth and tenth was shared with Fernando Casas, Hector Rossetto and Erich Gottlieb Eliskases a half point behind. In the sole spot of eleventh was Alfredo Esposito at 7.5 followed closely by Eugene Albert a half point behind. In Thirteenth through sixteenth a four way tie with Bernardo Wexler, Jorge Behrensen, Carlos Incutto and Walter Ader Hausman each with 5.5. Tied for the last two spots were Jose Thiago Mangini and Fernando Rubio Aguado, each a point and half behind.
