Lothar Schmid (†)

Lothar Schmid was a personal friend of Ken Whyld but "The Omniscient One" couldn't move the "chess player, collector, publisher" to make a catalogue of his collection. At least there is – in a very small edition (100 copies) – an offprint of an article by Marion Faber from "Librarium, Zeitschrift der Schweizerischen Bibliophilen-Gesellschaft" issue I/1980 (23rd year) bearing just such a title, quite by chance M.N. became its proud owner when visiting a Düsseldorf antiquarian bookshop. It's no. 19/100 and it belonged to the late Rolf Rönnefahrt, a friend of L.S.'s youth.
