Blackburne book now at typesetting stage

J. H. Blackburne was Britain's greatest player before the late 20th century. Tim Harding's major biography and game collection about him will be published by McFarland later this year. We expect to receive the page proofs during April.

It is now possible to pre-order the Blackburne book on Amazon or at McFarland's website. Meanwhile, have you read Eminent Victorian Chess Players yet?
