How to play chess endings by Evg. A Znosko-Borovskiĭ( Book )

13 editions published between 1940 and 2018 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How many chess players really know what to do in the end game? More is demanded in this stage of the game than in any other, and the knowledge and imagination that saw you through the opening and middle game are just not enough to carry you through the end game also. You need a thorough knowledge of the principles of chess endings, and this book is an excellent introduction to those principles. World-famous chess teacher Eugene Znosko-Borovsky clearly explains the importance of tempo, the rule of the triangle, the idea of related squares, the power of the pawn and king, and the versatility of the rook. Each piece is studied individually, and many common end game situations are considered. Drawing on games from such master players as Morphy, Marshall, Steinitz, Capablanca, Alekhine, Lasker, and Botvinnik, Znosko-Borovsky shows you how to think during the end game no matter what pieces you may have or what situation you may be in. Special consideration is given to the theory of positional play, the conception and execution of a plan, and the recognition of tactical opportunities. Emphasis throughout the book is on understanding principles, rather than memorizing moves, with the result that the reader will be able to apply Znosko-Borovsky's techniques to almost any situation that may arise. The author's well-known clarity of exposition makes this book most useful to a beginner or intermediate player
The art of chess combination : a guide for all players of the game by Evg. A Znosko-Borovskiĭ( Book )

16 editions published between 1936 and 1959 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Art of Chess Combination' will improve the game of anyone who knows how to move individual pieces, but finds it hard to plan many moves ahead to make the pieces work together. The exposition is easily understood; technical terms are almost completely avoided, but clarity and precision remain." --
Traps on the chessboard; or, Dangers in the openings by Evg. A Znosko-Borovskiĭ( Book )

40 editions published between 1938 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dieser Klassiker der Schachliteratur erlebt nun bereits seine 12. Auflage. Der nach Paris emigrierte russische Meister (1884-1954) hatte bereits 1939 über 200, meist kurze Partien gesammelt und nach Eröffnungssystemen gegliedert, wobei er den Amateur mit den typischen Fallen vertraut machen will. Die von vielen Händlern noch angebotene Vorauflage soll "dieses Mal in größerem Umfang aktualisiert" worden sein, worauf ich im Text aber keine Hinweise finden konnte. Namen der Spieler und Datum werden in der Regel nicht angegeben, doch wo sie ermittelt werden konnten, stammen die Beispiele aus den 20er- und 30er-Jahren. Da es jedoch um elementare Motive geht, ähnlich einsetzbar wie E. Gelenczei "200 (neue) Eröffnungsfallen (BA 1/92; 6/92) und J. Neistadt "Eröffnungskatastrophen erkennen - vermeiden" (BA 1/98).
