This work is addressed mainly at collectors and booksellers of chess literature. The bibliography is comprised of books, booklets, other publications, periodicals as well as chess columns in non-chess magazines, all with the date of issue until the end of 1945. There are only a few exceptions, with titles given with a later date, e.g. for the sake of completeness of the edition Šachové umění which started in 1936 and was finished in 1947. Only those items wereincluded in which at least a minimal part - though only the title - is in Czech. Books by Czech authors published in other languages are left out and equally omitted are books and magazines published in the Czech Republic in a different language than Czech. No manuscripts are included. More than 400 titles are described.


A fine copy issued without jacket.
