Dale A. Brandreth, the industrious person behind Caissa Editions has also worked several times as an author or as a coauthor. Well-known is his contribution to John Hilbert’s book project Shady Side: The Life and Crimes of Norman Tweed Whitaker Chess Master. For this book Dale Brandreth made his rich fund of documents on Whitaker available to John Hilbert who was enthusiastic about this excellent source material.

Another co-production – of Dale Brandreth and David Hooper – once filled a gap in chess literature, the lesser known and mostly unpublished games of the third chess world champion were the focus of the authors’ attention: 203 out of about 600 games collected beforehand had been selected for the book The Unknown Capablanca.
