141+[1 ad] pages with tables, diagrams and plates. Octavo (9″ x 6″) (Bibliotheca van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:5383) First edition. The health resort of Marienbad, Czechoslovakia was the host of an international chess tournament from May 20th to June 8th in 1925. Sixteen chess masters from Europe and the Americas participated in the round robin event. Among them were former and current World Champion challengers, including Frank James Marshall, Akiba Rubinstein, David Janowski, and Aron Nimzowitsch. Rubinstein took off to an early lead but eventually he was racing neck and neck with Nimzowitsch, with whom he eventually shared first place. While the quality of games was regarded as poor by many high profile absentees from the tournament, it was an important victory for both Nimzowitsch and Rubinstein as they were later regarded as top players of the 1920s.
