Only 1 remaining

Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1975. First edition. Tear to back of jacket, otherwise very good.

'The secret to the success of this book is that is simply goes further in documenting the idiosyncrasies of chess players.. It is a bravura performance that Mr Cockburn puts on, erudite, bold, and challenging, yet accessible and entertaining to readers of all types.'
