Has anyone read Lev Alburt's books? If so, what do you make of them and which ones did you read? The reviews on Amazon are sparse, but chesscafe. I've never heard of him before. I recently found one of his books hidden in a remote corner of my local library. At first I thought it looks really corny and terrible particularly the cover art , but I think it might actually be a brilliant book.

And even the chess board is beautiful, despite it being one of your least expensive chess boards. It was a dreary dismal day here, cold and rainy and receiving the set made it feel like the sun had come out. Opening the package was better than Christmas. To cut a long story short, this set is the finest I've ever seen or even held in my hands.
Both sets are absolutely beautiful. I know I'm going to enjoy the Zagreb set. The new chessmen look great sitting on it, and I'm sure it will give me hours of pleasure playing the greatest game of all! I may not play like a grandmaster, but I will feel like one. Thank you for your help and prompt attention. I knew from the pictures that they were beautiful but they are much more than this: they're real masterpieces! I must say that they are gorgeous! I felt I was treated as if one of the family in the way the order was taken and delivered.
I'm a very happy customer! The pictures looked great, but they don't do this set justice. I can't believe there is a finer classic Staunton chess set out there.
It is truly beautiful. Thanks" G. It is a magnificent set. It is rare to find items crafted so well and I will certainly recommend The House of Staunton to others. The quality and workmanship for a set in this price range is amazing. I am looking forward to my next purchase. Was struck by overall superior quality and weight. The Rosewood is quite beautiful. More than I expected. Thanks for accommodating extra queens. They are beautiful. Thank you for a fine product. Worth every penny.
You've done something that I've always wanted to do: take an object I care about, and raise the world standard for functionality and aesthetics.
Well done. It's so exquisite, I can't stop looking at it. Though the pictures on your website are beautiful, they don't do justice to actually seeing them in person. I've been looking for a red-lacquered chess set for quite sometime, and this is the most beautiful I've ever seen. Thank you, also, for meticulously wrapping each piece. My brother is going to love his first real chess set. You are the best.
But you know that already. Keep me in the loop on how you plan to overtake all the crap plastic sets out there. You were very patient and accommodating during my selection process.
Now if I could only learn how to win a game It is massive, heavy, elegant and high-class. A true work of art. Not only is it the finest plastic chess set I've ever seen, but the biggest bargain, as well. That's a rare combination. It is awesome. I can't wait to save up enough for my House of Staunton chess board. The quality is above what I expected. I can only say that the photos on your web site do no justice to the Collector Series chess pieces.
I hand waxed them as you instructed, and they are truly exceptional. Everyone was as impressed as I was, with the beauty and quality of both my chess board and the wonderful chessmen.
HOS' chess boxes are beautiful. Absolutely the best I have ever seen in this price range. Will definitely be ordering some more. Sign Up for Our Newsletter:. Why settle for less when you can own a legendary chess set from The House of Staunton!
