Most welcome, therefore, is Henry Bird's timeless Chess Masterpieces, an elegant collection as vital and lively today as when first published - over 125 years ago! Here the reader will find gem after gem, the very essence of Romantic chess, with lucid and pithy comments by the "Grand Old Man" himself. This fine collection has unusual depth and variety for an assembly of just 157 games, yet all the leading players and forms of play are represented. Carefully organized, each game is a wonderful example of masterful chess, with perfectly-timed remarks by Mr. Bird - indeed a classic, and suitable for chess enthusiasts of any rank. This charming book will amply reward the aspiring player's careful attention, and offers an endless source of amusement and chess wisdom.

Expect the full benefits of ChessBase technology, with all of Birdís precise and pointed commentary integrated seamlessly - a treat for connoisseurs and avid players of every class. Birdís annotations are designed to be enjoyable, not overpowering; the compiler's technique is to encourage independent analysis, supported by memorable insights and telling remarks. Birdís analysis of these wonderful games provides the reader with a sure foundation, upon which he can build up his own chess understanding.

Players who wish to collect high quality, first-class games of chess will discover here the very best of chess art. It is with pleasure that we can recommend to everyone Henry Bird's treasure house of Chess Masterpieces.
