Chess Library

At our Club we maintain a small library of chess books, that members can access for free. We are very grateful to Terry Lillie of the Bridge Club who kindly donated some books this week, as he is moving house.

They are all interesting, but one stood out as I did not know the author. On researching him I discovered he was the first British titled Grandmaster, and no it was not Tony Miles! Comins Mansfield was a celebrated chess composer from Devon, but actually lived in Glasgow too, during the 1940s. (Playing board 3!). Fascinating biography here .comins
