Alexander Alekhine’s Chess Games, 1902–1946:
2543 Games of the Former World Champion, Many Annotated by Alekhine, with 1868 Diagrams, Fully Indexed
Leonard M. Skinner and Robert G.P. Verhoeven
This is by far the most comprehensive accounting of the games of this brilliant chess player: an exhaustive catalog the result of many years of digging—an effort unparalleled in the history of chess game collections. Many of the games are annotated by Alekhine and range from his earliest correspondence tournaments in 1902 through his final match with Francisco Lupi at Estoril, Portugal, in January 1946.
