It belonged to German Grand Master Lothar Schmid' incredible private collection and was auctioned at Sotheby's

Der Name dürfte im deutschen Sprachraum bekannt sein, weil in dem populären Buch „# für Tiger“ von IM Simon Webb die Partie Eley – Uhlmann (# 1972/73) kommentiert wurde. # # # #
Brian Eley, the 1972 British chess champion, has been accused in the 1970s of sexual offences and pedophilia. Arrested in 1991, he jumped bail and vanished. A fugitive to this day, he's still wanted by the British police and the Interpol (Hulton Archive).

Me and my dad spent the last 2 days remaking an old chess set from the national museum and now play chess intermittently whenever either of us have time for a move and I love it

The oldest chess set ever found dates circa 700, made of ivory, from Afrasiab, near Samarkand (Uzbekistan).

Before the abstract redesign by the Arabs, figurines like these travelled along the Silk Road to Russia, the Baltic, Scandinavia, and Central Europe.

Chess players are for the most part good fellows; intelligent, well-informed, of liberal ideas, and willing to befriend one another as opportunity may serve or necessity demand.

In 1936, G.H. Betts stated that only two men in Maiduguri knew how the game was played, Dikwa Village Head and a dead unnamed man. J.T. Adamson claimed that only Abba Bukar, a relative of the Shehu of Borno, and Auno District Village head were the surviving players of the game.

In 1926, the British anthropologist and colonial administrator, Charles Kingsley Meek (1885-1965) sold the Borno chess set (known in Kanuri as Tsatsarandi) to the British Museum. C.K. Meek and Captain Lloyd Carson witnessed the game in Maiduguri before he purchased the chess set.

Found a Frozen Charlotte doll from a homestead where Rawlings was inspired to write The Yearling! These were popular 1850s-1920. Easy to imagine a child playing with their toys (and pet deer?) in the 3-5 foot crawlspace. # #

Mit ein bißchen Glück greift man in der Jugend mal solche Titel ab, z. B. als Mitglied einer Schülermannschaft. Wir haben in Göttingen auch einen „ehemaligen Landesmeister“ mit 1600er-Spielstärke, der wegen seiner ständigen Verleumdungen und Hochstapeleien wenig gelitten ist.
