      Annotated Games & Essays
      Every chess player who is serious about improving his game, should study the lessons of Aron Nimzowitsch (1886-1935).

His books continue to be printed, sold and read to this day. Reinhardt’s collection starts where Nimzowitsch’s second volume Chess Praxis ends. It offers a unique view of the chess world of the late 1920s and 1930s, its top tournaments and the state of theory.
