Peter de Jong
Our Dutch member Peter de Jong (De Meern) has just informed us that he finished two minor publications last year: 600 Schaakgezichten [600 Chess Faces] and 325 Schaaktoernooien [325 Chess Tournaments], both privately printed and in a small edition only.
The two books exclusively contain images of chess players and chess tournaments, collected over the years from many different sources. Many come from private collections, others for instance have been found on the internet.
The books are not sold on a commercial basis, and at the moment only a few copies are left. But as the books were highly appreciated and as inquiries are still going on, Peter considers a reprint (i.e. 20 copies of each book), especially in case of a growing interest on the part of the KWF&A members.
Peter has also provided some image files (all PDFs):
600 Schaakgezichten – cover
325 Schaaktoernooien – cover / excerpt
As the books are printed on demand and in a small edition, the price is 25 € for 600 Schaakgezichten (111 pages) and 29.50 € for 325 Schaaktoernooien (171 pages).
Please contact Peter de Jong email@example.com to order the books.
