We are able to present you a lucky find here: a report on the Chess
Congress Brunswick 1880, taken from Chess Monthly August, 1880. The chess
exhibition in the Brunswick museum at the same time had been equipped
with precious exhibits from Wolfenbüttel: Brunswick
1880 (starting in the middle of p 355).
Chess friend Rainer Krämer from Wittmar has kindly offered us the
use of an article (including pictures) about chess events in Wolfenbüttel,
which he has written for a local history book of the rural district of
Wolfenbüttel 2004 and which we herewith would like to pass on to
our readers: Chess
in Wolfenbüttel (pdf file; in German only); we have arranged the pictures
(photos, papers) illustrating this article in a small picture
Sincere thanks go to Mr. Krämer for his fine chronicle.
