RECONCILING CHESS: 
a MARCEL DUCHAMP
SAMPLER
by CC-IM Allan G. Savage

    This special limited-edition booklet discusses the historical background and clandestine controversy surrounding Duchamp and Halberstadt's rare and esoteric book, Opposition and Sister Squares are Reconciled (1932).  It is based on detailed research and contains an extensive bibliography. Also included are two freshly annotated games of Duchamp -- one being his defeat of world champion Alekhine in a consultation game.  This game is missing from the recently published definitive collection of Alekhine's games by Skinner and Verhoeven.
