11th German Chess Association Congress
264 pages, hardback, Caissa 90-Olomouc, 1997
A diligently researched and highly readable account of a tournament never properly documented in chess literature, even though it included Chigorin, Charousek, Steinitz and Schlechter. There has been ongoing controversy over the lack of a tournament book and here Czech historian Vlastimil Fiala quoates widely in search of the reason. This is an attractive production, and includes 15 photo portraits, lengthy biographies of the participants, and all known games from the tournament, many annotated.
