Chess. Story. Figures. Players

Publisher: Art-Rodnik

Description:

The author of the book, Gareth Williams, examines the history of chess pieces, starting with the ancient cultures that existed in Asia and ending with modern chess that participate in competitions today. Most of the chess presented in the pages of this book dates back to the mid-18th century. Some of them come from ivory carving centers known at the time, such as Berkhampur in eastern India, Guangzhou in China, Dieppe in France or Kholmogory in Russia. These countries have developed their own schools, each with its own special plots, decorative motifs and methods of processing the material, which are usually passed down from generation to generation. The book will also introduce you to serious historical facts, interesting characters and fascinating details about the matches in which they participated.
