One of the most impressive tournament books ever written is the Karlsbad 1907 International Chess Tournament by Georg Marco and Carl Schechter. In fact, Jeremy Silman has called it "one of the best (if not THE best) tournament books ever written." Bob Sherwood's English translation of Marco's work in German runs 450 pages which also includes extensive notes by Karl Schlechter. It's an algebraic edition, with 15 new photos of the players. Dale Brandreth edits and adds historical material.There is a lot more prose involved in this book than in an analogous contemporary book, so Sherwood's translation must have taken an extraordinary amount of time and effort. He also makes his own notes about the games, corrects analysis with the help of Rybka, and updates the notation. Karlsbad 1907 was one of the classic round robin events of chess history, with 21 players, won by Rubinstein ahead of Maroczy, Leonhardt, Nimzowitsch, Schlechter, Duras, Marshall, Spielmann, Tartakower, Janowsky, Teichmann, Chigorin, and others. Marco's notes are colorful, insightful, and sometimes humorous. Every reviewer has strongly recommended this book, and I concur.There is a lot more prose involved in this book than in an analogous contemporary book, so Sherwood's translation must have taken an extraordinary amount of time and effort.
