Description

Excerpt from A Memorial to William Steinitz: Containing a Selection of His Games Chronologically Arranged With an Analysis of Play

A swiss music critic once remarked that every writer on Sebastian Bach should preface his discourse, no matter what and how much he intended to say, with the acknowledgment that it comprised but the one thousandth part of what might be said or ought to be said on the subject. This holds equally good of William Steinitz, the man who for nearly thirty years ruled the chess-world, who firmly impressed the game with the indelible stamp of his own individuality, and who moulded and reshaped the theory and style of play. Take any book on the openings, pierce it as with a needle, and you are sure to find an example of some startling innovation of Steinitz.
