Martin Ramsauer

Really wonderful books are created by our member Martin Ramsauer for it belongs to his profession as a book conservator to derive pleasure from it. After his first work "Weihnachtsbäume im Schachproblem" (2003) there is now (2007) a new item from his workshop, bound in cloth and with an attractive "additional design" on the front: Bogoljubow's chess column of the "Badische Illustrierte Zeitung" 1946-51 has been reprinted in a limited edition (of 50 copies), with that a widely unknown chess column from the postwar years run incognito for a long time is available again. The content is rather unexpected as "Bogol" turns out first and foremost to be a problem columnist and moreover an occasional composer as well.
