A Guide To Chess Endings - Max Euwe & David Hooper

Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1959, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good — in Poor Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with loss at the head of the spine and closed, but untidy, tear into the upper panel. Edges of the text block lightly spotted, more heavily to the top. Prize-plate to the first blank. Pages lightly age-tanned.

From the cover: “EX-WORLD CHAMPION Dr Max Euwe, one of the greatest experts in the end-game, and David Hooper, who has represented England in international matches, have set out to provide a systematic introduction to the study of practical endings. The emphasis is on practical play: the positions are chosen for their didactic value, quite ordinary and probable positions, in contrast to many endgames manuals which contain too many special positions, problems, or composed studies. Such studies may be tactically brilliant, but do little to improve one’s understanding of end-game theory.
