Re: Jerzy Gyžycki - A History Of Chess

It is the history of chess through illustration, not something the blurb makes clear.

Re: Media comments on chess

I saw CHESS MOVES sniggered at on the TV 'News Quiz' last week as Guest Publication. Victoria Coren Mitchell appeared to quote it a massive once, but I could be wrong. So nothing memorable or unpleasant happily ..

No, sorry.
BH Wood's children were CB, RFT and MEE Wood, now the widow of PH Clarke as you say. Christopher, Frank and Peggy. I can't get a Philip out of this. (Or see the Wood for the trees?) Ouch
