Cecil de Vere became the first ever British Chess Champion in 1866 and was compared, by Steinitz, to Paul Morphy. Yet he died from tuberculosis, a penniless alcoholic, less than 10 years after his greatest achievement.

This book charts de Vere's life, career and death in a 45 page biography which includes contemporary obituaries and many photographs of him and his fellow players. It also contains 101 of de Vere's games, with annotations.

A well researched and produced book on a talented although little-known player.

Published 2001, softback, 130 pages.
