The authors have known those who are stirred by the beauty of a sunset, the wording of a poem, or the melody of a song. Keats found beauty in a Grecian urn. The authors have found it in all of these, but found i=t also in the expression of genius which can sometimes flash out in a game of chess. This kind of beauty can be captured and frozen into a lasting cameo, forever challenging each newcomer to un=lock its secret.
Inscribed on front end paper. Corners gently bumped, Anthony White's stamp to half title and front end paper. Jacket spine ends and edges chipped with some closed tears and creases else better than very good in a very good jacket.
