Correspondence Chess in Britain and Ireland, 1824-1987

Tim Harding

McFarland & Co

439 Pages

 

Here we have a fascinating book, detailing Correspondence Chess up to 1990 in Britain and Ireland. Here there is no mention of Engines and Databases but the exploits of British players in, what is considered by some, the Golden Era of CC in the UK.

The book is a little on the high side price wise, running as £30 - £40 on Amazon, although much of this is related to the depth of research carried out on the book (which in part was related to the award of Tim Harding's PhD).

If you want something different about CC, this is the book!

Rating 89% (It would be higher but for the price!)
