Dear chess friends,

by a presentation of my own at the website of the Ken Whyld Association I would like to give you from time to time a report on my "collection of collectors". In the last years I enjoyed taking again and again the opportunity to visit chess friends and collectors and to admire their fine collections of chess literature and memorabilia. Suggestions emerged frequently from them for the completion of my own collection and valuable help with investigations. Additionally visits were paid to public libraries, to exhibitions and events as well as to chess dealers which were sometimes documented.
I will also present excerpts of my existing publications with chess historical background, some "great chess feats" as well as my current exchange and search lists.
Here you can find my short biography and a list of my publications:
Short biography / bibliography (in German only)
Suggestions and comments are always welcome – you may contact me by e-mail:
