    Blindfold Chess
    History, Psychology, Techniques, Champions, World Records, and Important Games
    Catalog Code: B0005MF

    During the 18th century, when Philidor played two blindfold games of chess simultaneously, eyewitnesses were asked to swear affidavits attesting to this remarkable feat. Since then, blindfold chess - the art of playing without sight of the board or pieces - has produced some of the greatest feats of human memory, progressing to the extent that the world record is 45 simultaneous blindfold games.

    CLEARANCE - The Literature of Chess
    Catalog Code: B0008MF

    Through the fortunate chance of having developed a notation to record actual games, chess has become very much a literary game. This has resulted in a veritable flood of books, with more being written about chess than any other sport. Hence, for the average chess player who would like to improve, the choice among such a vast number of books can be bewildering. The author has undertaken to review those books written by the great writers of the game and to select recommendations.
