Notes on the Life of Howard Staunton

Does anyone have a copy of John Townsend's book " Notes on the Life of Howard Staunton" ( 2011) that they would be willing to sell me ? I've already asked John - he doesn't have any left.

BCF Book of the Year 1990

Does anyone know which book which won this ?

I can't seem to find a list of past winners online which go back that far.

A customer has informed me that 1989 went to Winter's book on Capablanca and 1991 to Dvoretsky's Secret of Chess Training.

Thanks.

Catherine

Re: what's a good alternative to the DRUEKE 8" travel magnetic chess set ?

Thanks.

Yes, I did look at that one already but it doesn't have the raised edges.

My husband has the plastic set where the board is built into the base of the box and thus has a 2cm raised edge which makes it easy to hold vertically.

what's a good alternative to the DRUEKE 8" travel magnetic chess set ?

I'm trying to replace my husband's Drueke 8"/20cm travel magnetic set but it's no longer in production. Amongst its attractions: 1) Easy to hold at an angle/vertically when studying, due to size and the raised sides ( it's a boxed set) 2) Discarded pieces fit around the edge of the board Does anyone...
