Description: [CHESS] Bobby Fischer (1943-2008) American chess Grandmaster and the eleventh World Chess Champion. Many consider him the greatest chess player of all time. A Russian chess newspaper . On the inside Fischer has numbered the games in ink, starting with the number 442 and continuing to number each game until the last one which was 490. Therefore Fischer has written approx. 49 numbers on these pages. 8-1/2 x 11-3/4 in. All faults are minor. 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!.
