The following series of 5 titles is a development of the
earlier successful and popular Batsford series, incorporating subsequent
developments in the art. The later titles have become increasingly rare
to a point where a number of experts were of the opinion that Vol. 5 was
a “phantom book”, i.e. planned but never actually completed or published.
But here it is – a rare collector’s piece. All large format HB with attractive
pictorial covers.

The following set of 4 books represented the
culmination of many year’s work, aiming to present all known information
about the basic endgame, together with the best related studies. This is
a matching set in red bound cloth with gilt titling. From the library of
the late R. A. Slade, former champion of the West of England and several
counties. All in identical condition, in German. We are hoping to keep the
set together for a price of £50.00
