The authors presented their book for the first time to the chess public on 18/11/2011 in Brunswick. The high-quality layout, numerous pictures of the bibliographised works in color as well as text elements highlighted in color provide for an outstanding overall impression. A book that rouses and spurs the collector's passion on!

Henri Serruys (*1948) is a founding member of the Ken Whyld Association of chess book collectors, while Guy Van Habberney (*1954) is the worldwide chairman of this organization, which promotes the collection of chess books and intends to contribute to a greater knowledge of the history of the game of chess.

In this publication, the authors give a comprehensive overview of all chess books published in Belgium, not just the usual technical books, but also those that are more literary in nature and that feature chess as a theme. Images of all these books are provided. The authors have also added very detailed chapters on Bulletins as well as on Magazines.
