A dozen or so years ago I was reading a little book by . Horowitz called The Golden Treasury of Chess. The book is a simple collection of brilliancies categorized by the different ages of chess. In the Romantic Era, Horowitz presented one perfectly lovely game from Prince Dadian of Mingrelia. I was amazed, first that a prince had played high level chess and second that he was so tactically amazing. I was immediately enamored with Andrei Dadiani. With the help of a friend of mine, I eventually created a fairly large site dedicated to Prince Dadian. For a few weeks I've been exploring some old magazines for things I may have missed. That's what this posting's about.

Excellent choice of games. I'm working through every one.

I had owned the paperback edition since about 1973, but because of forty years of wear and tear the covers and pages became loose from the binding. I never knew that there was a hardcover edition since researching for a replacement on Amazon. Now I am transcribing favorite games from the English notation which was the standard way of recording games at that time to the more modern Algebraic system.

My chess players raved about the readability of book. Lots of savvy moves and strategies for the very knowledgeable beginner OR intermediate player!

Mostly an outdated compilation of games. Very lightly annotated.
Barinirm
The choice of the games is fairly good, but I was disappointed by the absence of any annotation.

I love this book.

This is hands down my favorite collection of chess games ever. Finding the most brilliant and artful games by Morphy, Blackburne, Steinitz, Marshall, Anderssen, Tarrasch, Lasker, Alekhine, Capablanca, Reti, Botvinik, Tal, Petrosian, Evans, Reshevsky, Fischer, Spassky et al. in one place is sufficient to provide continuous entertainment and education for many years. It is through the appreciation of a relatively few great games that one comes to truly love the game of chess. Searching for these rare gems can take a lifetime of research. Whether the credit goes to Wellmouth or Horowitz for compiling this collection, this book contains only the very best, most interesting and most charming games one is ever likely to encounter. There are hundreds of other collections of great chess games available, but none has been assembled with the sensitivity to art and brilliance reflected in this volume. If I could only take one chess book with me on my voyage to Mars, this would certainly be the one.
The game selection is the important thing, and this book is chock full of games that are unusual or brilliant or just interesting in some way. All of the old masters are included.
