The great London tournament of 1922 saw the newly crowned champion of the world - Capablanca - as well as many of his closest rivals, Alekhine, Bogolyubov, Rubinstein and Vidmar, assemble in the capital of the British Empire for the most powerful demonstration of chess prowess there since 1899. First published in 1922, Chess Pieprovides the setting and the atmosphere for the Tournament. Biographies of Players with Specimen Games, Past and Present British Champions, a Problem Section, and a selection of lighter articles are completed by Sketches, Drawings, Autographs, Portraits, and a number of advertisements for chess accessories and other products and services.
