As the third
volume of our Ken Whyld trilogy a reprint of the periodical Chess
Students Quarterly has come out, again from the
printing press of Vlastimil Fiala's Publishing
House Moravian Chess:
K. / Cordingley, E.R.G.: Chess Student
all volumes of 'The Chess Students Quarterly', Vol. 1-6.
Published in August 2007; 568 p., € 35.- (shop price)
Vlastimil Fiala will offer this book to KWA members at a good price
of € 20.- only.
The preparatory work on the CSQ reprint (scanning and working over of
the scans) proved to be especially laborious - due to the partly poor
quality of the originals; we owe the completion of these preliminaries
to Michael Negele who invested a large part of his leisure time in it.
Moreover he contributed a preface garnished with passages from Ken Whyld's
quite personal article on his friend E.G.R. Cordingley. Below we offer
both for reading:

At this point we would like to thank Andy Ansel and Tony Gillam too for
sending original CSQ issues. A valuable enlargement of our reprint is
the inclusion of Ken Whyld's first publication Match Bronstein - Boleslavski
1950, we are again very obliged to Tony Gillam who gave the permission
for its reprinting.
Unfortunately it turned out that owing to a production fault the second
part of issue 16 (p. 465-484) has not been included in the CSQ reprint.
We ourselves regret it most that the reprint has been unsuccessful in
this regard, and we would like to apologize to all those who are affected.
We offer the missing pages here as a pdf-file:
