Das Internationale Schachturnier Moskau 1925
Verlag von Walter deGruyter & Co, Berlin and L 1927 - xii+222 pages with frontispiece. Octavo (8 1/2" x 6") issued in brown cloth with brown lettering to spine and front cover. Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:5385. 1st edition. Moscow 1925 was one of the great events in the annals of chess, this tournament (November-December 1925) established two 'firsts'. The first confrontation of the Soviet masters with the recognized leaders of international chess; and, as the inevitable concomitant, the first of the type of contest to which the host country contributes a substantial number - between one half and one third - of the total entries (Zurich 1934, Moscow2 1935, Kemeri 1937 were later events run on the same formula). In the event, the home team acquitted themselves well, with Bogoljubow winning 1st prize and Romanovsky and Illyin-Zhenevsky in the prize list. The Russian champion took the lead early, closely followed by Lasker, Torre and Rubinstein. The last-named collapsing completely after a 9th round defeat by Yates. Capablanca had scored only 50% halfway, but finished strongly, annexing en route the first (against Zubarev) and the third (against Duz-Khotimirsky) brilliancy prizes. As a restult of this outcome Bogolijubow joined the ranks of World Championship candidates, while the view generally held on the Continent (though not in the USA or Britian) that Lasker was still superior to Capablanca received new nourishment. (Golombek Encyclopedia of Chess) Condition: Corners bumped and rubbed through, spine ends rubbed, lightly soiled, previous owner's name whited out on back paste down, front end paper clipped at heal corner else about very good issued without jacket.
