General Treatise on Chess by R. Grau: English translation

Post by nem500 » Sun Nov 08, 2015 5:48 pm

Hey guys,
Some of you may have heard of Roberto Grau’s ”General Treatise on Chess”.
It’s a legendary series of four books that covers the Fundamentals, Tactics, Pawn Formations and Strategy of chess.
Sadly, they’re not available in English. However, last year was the 70th anniversary of Grau’s death, which means the books are now out of copyright. Inspired by this, I’ve created a Kickstarter project to translate the second book, Tactics. The idea is to get enough contributions to pay for editing, cover design, distribution and so on. So far, I’ve translated the first two chapters (you can download them from Kickstarter) so you can get an idea of what the book would look like.
Here’s the link: ... rau-transl
Have a look and if you like what you see, I would very much appreciate your help in making the project a reality.

Hi, just do them in ebook and Kindle version, then you can self-publish at no cost!
