Hans Bouwmeester is on of the leading Dutch masters of the younger school and has already achieved distinction both int he Netherlands and the international field. The aim in selecting the 101 studies in the collection has been twofold. Firstly to present the to the chess public the quintessence of the most brilliant and artistic studies of this century; and secondly, to demonstrate to the chess player how useful many of the ideas contained in these studies can be in over-the-board play. All these studies are miniatures-that is, none contains more than ten pieces-and this is done so as to show the end-game ides in their clearest and most brilliant form. (Blurb from flap)
