Luca’s first major publication, his work on the chess tournaments Meran 1924 and 1926, is obviously a masterstroke, probably the finest tournament book ever produced; accordingly the spontaneous reactions of the readers were overwhelming. Particularly we have to emphasize the painstaking research work of the author spanning over 7 years, all the additional information and documentations given in the book, the throughout abundant illustration with rare historical photographs, drawings, lithographs and documents. And naturally the magnificent overall get-up of the book combined with an excellent layout by Ulrich Dirr.
