Some lovely old Fred Reinfeld's

Here are a few books by Fred Reinfeld recently acquired, all with attractive dust jackets:

The Modern Fundamentals of Chess, Nicholas Kaye, London 1961.

How to get more out of Chess, Arco, London 1958.

The Complete Chessplayer, Prentice-Hall, Englewood Cliffs, N.J. 1953.

Not to be confused with....

The Complete Chess Player, by Edward Young (a.k.a. Fred Reinfeld), Arco, London 1960.

How to Play Chess, Eyre & Spottiswoode, London 1954 

And for the more ambitious....

How to Play Chess Like a Champion, Arco, London 1957. 

Chess: How to Fight Back, W. Foulsham & Co. London 1956.

Obviously the content of each book is practically the same but, with a policy of collecting everything in English up to 1968, I need all of these. Furthermore as no one else wants them they are only a few £££'s each.

I now have around 45 books by Reinfeld which is probably about a third of his chess output.
