Blackburne book now at proof-reading stage

Joseph Henry Blackburne (1841-1924) was Britain's greatest chess player before the late 20th century. Tim Harding's major biography and game collection about him will be published by McFarland (hardback and e-book) later this summer. We are half way through proof reading.
