L'histoire du jeu d'échecs par correspondance au XIXe siècle
Volume I: Des origines à 1840
Eric Ruch presents here the first volume of a comprehensive history of correspondence chess and follows with that an old suggestion of Eduard Dyckhoff ["Who will write us the history of correspondence chess?"]. The more than 70 included games reproduced from the period 1804 to 1840 (few played till 1843) are predominantly provided with contemporary comments as well as numerous diagrams. A 16-page appendix with black and white illustrations (reproduced are old letters and pages from books) completes the work whose English edition we hopefully can expect soon.
