In total 1350 different ex-libris with chess motifs are represented! Lists sorted by catalogue number, by owner and by artist, have been revised and fully integrated.

Belgian chess publications: an annotated bibliography

This teamwork of cash auditor and chairman is definitely a "raisin in the cake" of chess biblio-graphies, as the meticulous compilation of the complete Belgian chess literature mates here with an exquisite color printing whose impact is unveiled above all by the numerous pictures. Many information boxes (highlighted in color) on relevant authors, photographs of chess personalities, a correlation table (as to L/N and Cleveland) and an index of names complete a work which belongs to the required stock of each bibliographically interested chess friend.
