Emanuel Lasker (Ed)

"Lasker's journal especially shone in its attention devoted to chess-related prose, such as the tale of General Rahl (p.267), the unfortunate English general in the American war of independence who (engrossed in a chess game) ignored the fateful note telling him of George Washington's approach. Elsewhere, we learn of a chess analogy with American football (p.87) and of King Oscar II of Sweden's ""second solution"" to a chess problem on top of his anniversary cake (p.192). He cut it with his cake knife, ""cleaving the black king in twain."". (Reviewed by BCM)"

Published 1999, hardback, descriptive notation, 288 pages.
