Volume 1: This extensively researched series tries to present as many as possible of Alekhine's tournament, consultation, simultaneous and blindfold games. Volume 1 contains extensive biographical material as well as 333 games. Much new biographical information has ome to light after research in Russia following the collapse of communism there.
Volume 2 of this exhaustively researched series contains 360 games and extensive background and biographical material. Many of the games have contemporary annotations and tournament cross tables are included. As before games are taken from tournament, consultation, simultaneous and blindfold play. Volume 3 contains 297 games with annotations from Alekhine and his contemporaries. The world's major (and minor!) newspaper and periodical libraries have been scoured for information and games and as a result this book contains a large amount of hitherto unknown biographical and background information as recorded in contemporary sources. As usual the indexing and referencing is excellent. Also includes 14 pages of photographs on art paper.
