This resulted in a book of the type that I love. A chess player of any strength can find a lot of useful things here.

    Из ценных пород дерева. Высота короля - 9,5 см, диаметр основания - 4,2 см. Наиболее удобны для практической игры! Стоимость указана при покупке в Москве. Стоимость пересылки уточняйте при заказе. Вот уже полтора века эти фигуры украшают все крупные шахматные соревнования. Их благородный, совершенный силуэт не спутаешь ни с каким другим. И кому не известно, что они названы так по имени великого Стаунтона. Но, оказывается это глубокое заблуждение: эти фигуры создал совсем другой человек! В 1995 году директор музея шахмат России Наталья Иванова поделилась с общественность своим открытием, ставшим результатом её многолетних изысканий. Потребность в универсальных шахматных фигурах возникла к середине прошлого века, в преддверии первого международного турнира в Лондоне (1851). В то время европейские игроки пользовались различными шахматными дизайнами. Англичане обратились к талантливому лондонскому художнику Натаниелю Куку. Работа у него двигалась споро, пока не дошло дело до коня. Кук поступил мудро - он направился в Британский музей и, действительно, вскоре нашел там искомое: прообразом «стаунтоновского» коня с подстриженной на античный манер гривой послужила один из лошадей, изображенных на хранящемся в музее фризе Парфенона - древнегреческого храма, украшенного знаменитым Фидием в V веке до н. э. Когда комплект полностью был готов, его показали знаменитому шахматному мастеру Говарду Стаунтону. Благородные фигуры так ему понравились, что он разрешил... ставить свое факсимиле на коробках с фигурами. Дизайн «стаунтона» (о Куке все как бы забыли) был запатентован 1 марта 1849 года, а уже 29 сентября лондонская фирма «Джон Жаке» предложила первый комплект для продажи. Какое-то время эта фирма была единственным производителем стаунтоновских шахмат. Затем их стали делать и в других странах. В Петербурге их производила некая фирма Гейча. Любопытно, что один из выпущенных ей комплектов использовался в первом матче Карпов - Каспаров (1984). Есть какая-то тайна в этих удивительных фигурах, и постичь ее, наверное, может далеко не каждый художник. Кажется, нашим мастерам, вооружённым новейшими технологиями, это удалось.
