The fourth Interzonal in 1958 was moved from Sweden for the first time, being held in Yugoslavia at Portoroz. This event marked the coming of age of the new generation of World title contenders, with Tal securing first place, and the fifteen-year-old Fischer astonishing all by qualifying for the Candidates. The Russians did not come up to their own very high expectations with both Bronstein and Averbakh being edged out of qualifying places.
Foxing throughout, edge wear to wrappers, spine sunned, else a very good copy.
