The art of the checkmate by Georges Renaud( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most popular and enduring chess books of all time finally gets the English-language edition it deserves--with algebraic notation for the very first time! When it originally appeared in the 1950s, The Art of Checkmate was marred by a careless and mistake-filled translation. This new version accurately reflects the authors' stellar work, including fresh analysis and text missing from previous publications. It presents the basic patterns of checkmate, explanations of how to carry them out, examples from regular play, and test-yourself puzzle positions to reinforce Renaud and Kahn's valuable unmatched information. Never before has it been clearer why so many players consider this a favorite, and put it on their top-ten lists

Caro-Kann defence : the Panov attack by Anatoly Karpov( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Caro-Kann Defence has a justified reputation for reliability, making it an attractive choice for players with a preference for positional play. However in recent years many new dangerous ideas have been discovered for White which makes a study of the theoretical main lines imperative for competitive players. The Panov Attack against the Caro-Kann, 1. e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 cxd5 4. c4, covered in this second volume in the series, leads to a rapid opening of lines and very lively piece play with prospects of a quick attack on the kingside, queenside or the centre.

Gyula Breyer : The Chess Revolutionary by Jimmy Adams( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gyula Breyer (1893-1921) was a highly successful and imaginative chess player. He won the championship of his native country Hungary as a teenager and achieved remarkable results against the leading players of his day. But first and foremost, Breyer was a revolutionary in his chess thinking. He promoted the idea of dynamic chess and formulated many of the Hypermodern concepts, long before others started their investigations. Yet, after his death, he was omitted from most of the chess history books and today is only known for the Breyer variation, an ever popular defence against the Ruy Lopez
