Richard Forsters storverk om den gamle mesteren Amos Burn (1848-1925) er 972 sider fordelt på to bind i stor paperback-utgave, til en svært gunstig pris. Utrolig innholdsrikt og alltid glimrende utført av Forster.

I tillegg til å være historien om sjakkmesteren og angrepsspilleren Amos Burn gir framstillingen mange gode tidsbilder av sjakkmiljøet over en lengre epoke.
