idea for this book had already been born in 2004 but good 4 years
should go by before the result was available in book form. Naturally
the decision to publish the book in a bilingual edition (German/English)
had a lasting influence on the completion of the project. You will
find more details on the history of the origins and the realization
of the book in Michael Negele's introduction which we offer here for
a reading in advance:

the bibliographical entries
all the German chess clubs (so far as known to the authors) have
been considered which were founded by 1914 and have at least published
one commemorative publication in the course of their club history.
Apart from the pure bibliographical data also details about the
contents of the commemorative publications have been given. Naturally
the extent of these details vary a lot - simply depending on the
contents of the commemorative publications.
