The king (of chess) is overthrown; long live the new king!
British Chess Magazine is the latest to give a favourable review to Eminent Victorian Chess Players, saying: "...bursting with good things. What a brilliant book."
This is just one of four recent reviews that revive interest in Tim Harding's book about the careers of ten major figures in 19th century chess, including Bird, Evans, Staunton, Steinitz, and Zukertort.
Work on Tim's mammoth Blackburne biography is well advanced.
