Description: Offered here is a 1959 chess magazine once owned by Robert “Bobby” Fischer. Fischer has made a small doodle design and the back page and has written a number & Mr. Donnelly. We can not sure for sure but the Mr. Donnelly is likely William H. Donnelly who played a chess game against Fischer in 1956. Very unusual item for the serious chess collector. Provenance: Robert "Bobby" Fischer - Brooklyn Library - Swann's Auction - East Coast Books. In the late 1960s Fischer is said to have need money so he sold his chess library to the Brooklyn Library, who then sold off some of their holding at auction in NYC, some 25 years later. Rare!.
