Bibliographical Remarks I

Bewerwijk / Wijk aan Zee has not only a long tradition of important chess tournaments (starting in 1938, only interrupted in 1945, so it is No. 66 in 2004.) but there is also a long series of different tournament books and bulletins published. So it´s a pity for the collectors of chess literature that nowadays nice tournament books are only produced very seldom.


The first one is "Hans Kmoch, Het Schaakcongres Beverwijk 1946 - published by the Hoogoven-Tournooiclub" - which gives also a short overview on the first tournaments by P.A. Veldheer: page 3-4

Very impressing is the book "60 jaar Hoogovens Schaaktoernooi" by Lex Jongsma and Alexander Münninghoff - published by New In Chess Interchess BV in 1998.
