General Treatise on Chess

Recently a Spanish language set of four chess books by the name of el Tratado General de Ajedrez  by Argentinian Chess Master Roberto Grau was recommended to me. The book has been called the Bible of Latin American Chess, and it is highly regarded among Latin American chess players.

Grau’s work which is composed of 4 volumes, is now out of print and was never translated to any other language. The 4 volumes cover the following themes:

1. Fundamentals
2. Tactics
3. Pawn Structures
4. Advanced Strategy

Luckily I read spanish, so I will be using the books as part of my chess study, and I plan on translating and posting about it in future entries.
