In last November, the University of Valencia hosted a Jornada de Estudio dedicated to Alice in Wonderland, ...

the 26th of November was the 150th anniversary of its publication in 1865. On this occasion our member José A. Garzón had prepared a presentation on the role of chess in Through the Looking-Glass, and he also came up with a solution of the chess problem in the preface which for one and a half century has created perplexity among critics and chess players. Here is his article in Spanish:

El juego doble del espejo y el tablero. A vueltas con un enigma ajedrecístico de Lewis Carroll. (PDF, 2.9 MB)
