Title page with a famous
of A. Kraemer and E. Zepler
Ado Kraemer, famous problem composer of the Logical-New
German Problem School, is not only presented here with his unsettled life
story but also with more than 260 of his problems, usually reproduced as
diagrams and furnished with detailed solutions. Most of the selected problems
and studies have not been included in the Kraemer/Zepler work Im Banne
des Schachproblems, nevertheless the reader will find here many a masterpiece
which would have been suited for that anthology. A recapitulatory appreciation
of Kraemer's problem production is added on 3 pages subsequent to the biographical
part. A whole lot of quotes and short articles by and on Ado Kraemer have
been worked in which will contribute to shed light on Kraemer's personality.
Moreover for the first time Ado Kraemer is presented in this work as an
OTB player (Master of Westfalia 1923, shared with Dr. A. Schäfer),
all known Kraemer games are gathered in the annexe. The book has been carefully
proofread by the editor, Godehard Murkisch who has also contributed a foreword.
