Beschreibung

Julius Finn was born in Russian Poland, and came to New York in 1887 at the age of 16. From a humble start as a street peddler on the Lower East Side, Finn swiftly rose to become New York´s champion chess master and one of the country´s best blindfold chess entertainers.

Finn´s chess success contributed to the rise of the chess scene in the Big Apple in the early twentieth century, and he fared equally well in business, parlaying his skills into a highly successful career.
Along with a foreword by John S. Hilbert, this biography of Finn in America includes analysis of 96 of his chess games - most of them previously unknown or little studied - line drawings of game situations, and photographs.
