A sone 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 his tory. Despite a commanding lead in the early stages ofthat match, Zukertort ultimately had to bow for Steinitz, plagued by health problems that would cause his untimely death only rwo years later. The high-point of Zukertort' s career was his triumph at the 1883 'super-toumament' in London. His dazzling win against Blackburne still stands as one of the greatest games of all time. Acdaimed chess author J imm y Adams presents a selection ofZukertort' s best games, mainly annotated by Zukertort hirnself, and a collection ofinsightful artides on Zukertort from contemporary sources. In this monumental book, originally published in 1989 in a limited edition and highly sought after by chess collectors, Jimmy Adams brings Zukertort' s master- pieces 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.
