The Oxford companion to chess
So much has happened in the ever-changing world of chess since 1984, that this new edition of the essential companion to all branches of the game is now 10% longer than the acclaimed first edition.
Much of the original text has been rewritten to incorporate the latest research and developments. There are over 160 new biographies (most of them of today's players), hundreds more names of openings, many more technical terms, and more game scores and compositions than ever before.
Ranging from the earliest myths to the present, the Companion offers full coverage of all aspects of over-the-board play and correspondence chess, and other forms of telechess. Fully cross-referenced throughout, the 2,600 entries take the reader from laws and strategies to details of the representation of chess in philately, literature, art, theatre, and film.

Review: The Oxford Companion to ChessUser Review - Morris Nelms - Goodreads
This isn't a book you read, but it's great fun to browse. Excellent information about anything and everything to do with chess. It's dated, sure, because the last edition came out in the 1990s. It's still great. Read full review
