The Chess Literature of Australia and New Zealand – hardback


The Chess Literature of Australia and New Zealand by Jon van Manen, Bob Meadley and Paul Dunn


Signed by Paul Dunn, one of the authors.

A history book with a difference as it has a description for every chess publication in Australia and New Zealand.

This is the fourth edition, limited to only 250 copies.

The fourth edition brings the bibliography up to June 2009. The authors searched through most of the newspaper chess columns in Australia and New Zealand to try and bring forward as much detail on chess as possible. Numbers around brackets at the end of each item are the item number the three booklets published between 1978 and 1989 by van Manen. Numbers in the square brackets are the item number in the third edition. With the advent of digital publications and the World Wide Web, there is now a blurring of the definition of literature. In this book, the authors treated videos, DVDs, CdRoms and digital publications in the same way as traditional printed literature.

The index includes publication titles, and authors. Hardback 242 pages. ISBN 9788674664193
