Synopsis

First published in 1987 to overwhelming international acclaim, Jeremy Gaige's Chess Personalia has been called ""one of the most useful chess books ever published"" (Edward Winter in New in Chess). The book is an invaluable resource for researchers and enthusiasts, and original copies are highly sought after by chess collectors.

This biobibliography contains around 14,000 worldwide entries, each entry offering full name, date and place of birth and death, FIDE title, country of citizenship and citations to mentions in the world's media. Variants in names are cross-referenced. Those knowledgeable in the chess world will recognize the author's name and be completely assured as to the comprehensiveness, accuracy, lack of bias, and sedulous research this extraordinary reference work represents.
