Description: [CHESS] Authentic 1964 Russian chess magazine once owned by Bobby Fischer and part of his working library. Fischer, through a NYC bookshop arranged to sell his chess library to the Brooklyn Library, sometime during the late 1960s. Apparently he was in need of money. Years later the library consigned his books and chess magazines to the Swann Auction Galleries in NYC for auction where we purchased his magazines. We guarantee that Fischer once owned this magazine and this lot will come with a letter of authenticity guarantee. VG.
