"All games are a form of war, but none so transparent nor so fierce as chess. It is played all over the world, its complexity seems to justify the outlay of time, craftsmanship and money that can turn its pieces into works of art. This detailed review article on Chessmen for Collectors by Dr Victor Keats M.Phil Ph.D. goes into great detail in describing the various carved and sculpted chess sets that are described in this book. It is combined with a personal interview with the author." The Sunday Times Magazine
