Alexander Alekhine wins chess tournanment...

Item # 647576

June 18, 1929

THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 18, 1929

* Alexander Alekhine wins chess tournament
* Russian and French chess grandmaster

The sport's section (page 27) has a one column heading: "ALEKHINE IS FIRST IN SPECIAL EVENT" with subhead. (see) I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 60 pages, light toning and minor wear at the margins, generally very nice.
