A Monumental New Year’s Treat for Collectors passionate about Emanuel Lasker

"There is no end to the treasures in David DeLucia's chess library, arguably the finest collection in the world", New In Chess said in 2010.
David DeLucia now presents the highlights of his Emanuel Lasker collection in an exclusive, splendidly produced book. The imposing book (711 pages, double stitched binding and printed on high-quality paper) comes in an elegant slipcase and is published in an edition of only 75 copies.
Because of the high production costs and therefore the price of the book, there are no plans for the moment to print additional copies.
Of these 75 copies, New In Chess is proud to be able to sell 30 copies. Orders will be dealt with in order of arrival.


Emanuel Lasker is similar to a previous exclusive tome published by Mr. DeLucia, Bobby Fischer, Triumph and Despair, the highlights of his Bobby Fischer collection (sold out and no longer available).
Emanuel Lasker presents, chronologically arranged, numerous pictures from his scrapbook, a number of letters and ephemera, the 10-page World Championship contract of his match against Steinitz, a 10-page typescript imagining a conversation with some past luminaries such as Aristotle, Julius Caesar and Sir Isaac Newton and other manuscripts that are, to the author’s knowledge, unpublished.
These include:
- a 187-page typescript, “The Psychology of the Game.
- a 122-page typescript, “Creative Logic”.
- a 39-page typescript, “Progress by unemployment?”
- 82 pages of Martha Lasker’s, A Biographical Mosaic.
