The Collection of "Collectors" is Growing ...

by Michael Negele

For a good 15 years I have collected "collectors" of chess literature, certainly a strange variant of our fine hobby.
This "passion" began in the middle of the nineties when I started to pay visits to my barter partners in the course of vacation trips.
At first there were regular visits to my long-standing chess friend Dr Hans-Georg Kleinhenz (formerly Stolberg, for decades living in Munich) who actually "seduced" me to deal to a greater extent with the collecting of chess literature.

So I will soon report on newly included "gems" of my collection. Such visits show me all too clearly that my own "accumulation" of chess books urgently needs diligent care.
