Chess Results, 1747 - 1900

235 pages, paperback, McFarland, 2009.

Incl. 7% Tax, excl. Shipping Cost


This work records the results of the various chess competitions that took place all over the world from 1747 to 1900 and presents them in one single volume.

This comes from years of research through the consultation of numerous newspapers and periodicals dating back throughout the period, tournament and match books, and general works on this topic. It is the first real attempt in this field. As time goes by lots of information is lost forever, and the aim of my work is to preserve it.

I sincerely thank Mr. Jeremy Gaige (for Chess Tournament Crosstables, Volume One [1851-1900] ) and Mr. P. Feenstra Kuiper (for Hundert Jahre Schachzweikämpfe, 1851-1950 ) since without their works this book would have never come to life. Their books have been out of print for several years now.

This book contains 465 tournament crosstables (in Gaige's work there are only 330), 299 match crosstables (results given round by round), and 291 match results (where merely the total number of games won, lost and drawn for each player is reported).

The competitions are presented in chrono­logical order and then by day and month if that information is available. The country where each competition was played and the sponsor­ing groups (e.g., British Chess Federation, German Chess Federation and so on) are given in parentheses. Besides individual tourna­ments, the reader can also find the main team match events. I have excluded correspondence events (I did cite one or two because a famous player competed) and women's competitions.

I give each player's last and, when avail­able, first name; moreover I have standardized them.

The book contains a bibliography of sources and two indexes: of events, year by year (and alphabetical within years), and of players.

I have done my best to present a work that can become the standard reference book for anyone who loves the history of chess and is interested in researching the chess careers of the players of the past (the celebrated as well as the less well-known).
