BONUS SOCIOUS

OUR FOLDER- THE GOOD COMPANION CHESS PROBLEM CLUB, This periodical ran from 1913 to 1924 and was international in that,  though centered in the US, it had members around the World. Since at its height there were only  between 200 to 400 members, this journal was  almost scarce from the outset.  Interest was furthered due to its strong interest in chess history as well as chess problems. Complete volumes or years are hard to find. Here issues are offered on an individual basis with prices based on scarcity  as well as content. Prices are for single issues according to Volume numbers.

Content of special interest is noted. Prices are revised due to my finding a bundle of issues. All issues have chess problem content, usually at least 20 to 30 problems with solutions and discussion. Since the period of publication overlaps the First World War, there are obituaries for killed in  action and frequent notices connected to that war.WR

(THE) CHESS MONTHLY), Morphy and Fiske, original issues with covers, the reprints did not have the covers included and thus in a purist collector's sense the reprints are not complete. 1859: the 12 issues complete; each issue has both covers. Even the best of librariesseldom have the issues with covers. ,When bound, the binder often discarded the covers because the paper of the covers  was too weak to take the binding threads. The covers of every issue of this now scarce periodical had content and thus most sets with bound volumes are incomplete. At least six issues are virtually mint and one is waterstained. The November issue has one page with a torn-off quarter of a page with loss of content. That full page is supplied in p\xerox form as well. This year has each issue in a binder with a pocket with transparent sheets for protection. Sold only as a set. $1300.  1860: single issues, each with both covers, Jan. vg, foxed, pages uncut.  $75.

MINI-MIGHT CHESS BULLETIN, J. R. Schroeder, editor. Schroeder is one of the true characters of the chess world. Full of corny humor.

                        This magazine is quite scarce in its early years. All these issues were obtained by me when I bought the remaining part of the stock of the first chess book seller in the Americas, Will Lyons of Kentucky. He died around 1929, but his remaining chess material resided in garages until Dr. Buschke bought part of it around 1946 and I bought the rest from a book dealer named Robert Marx in 1971. Marx had bought the remaining collection from an eminent financier named Emerson Axe around 1970. I have never sold more than a few years previously.
