Sinopsis:

As one of the contestants in the first official World Championship match in 1886, Johannes Hermann Zukertort (1842-1888), is undeniably one of the great players of chess history. Despite a commanding lead in the early stages of that match, Zukertort ultimately had to bow for Steinitz, plagued by health problems that would cause his untimely death only two years later. The high-point of Zukertort’s career was his triumph at the 1883 ‘super-tournament’ in London. His dazzling win against Blackburne still stands as one of the greatest games of all time.

Acclaimed chess author Jimmy Adams presents a selection of Zukertort’s best games, mainly annotated by Zukertort himself, and a collection of insightful articles on Zukertort from contemporary sources.
At heart, Zukertort always remained an artist of the chessboard and his dash and brilliance resulted in many wonderful games. He was a profound analyst, had a tremendous amount of opening theory stored in his astonishing memory and also was an excellent endgame player.

In this monumental book, originally published in 1989 in a limited edition and highly sought after by chess collectors, Jimmy Adams brings Zukertort’s masterpieces to the notice of today’s chess world and secures his rightful place in history as an important link between the old combinational and the modern positional school.

Review:

Such comments as 'a labor of love' and 'a tour de force' come to mind when perusing this large book. (British Chess Magazine)

Another fine achievement. (Edward Winter)

Every chess player with an interest in history will thoroughly enjoy this book. Because if you replay his games, which sparkle with beauty and elegance, you will recognize that Zukertort was a great player who should not be remembered for his losses. (Frank Zeller, International Master Schachwelt)

A Splendid book. (B. Wilders, Nederlands Dagblad)
