Jose Capablanca's classic instructional manual Chess Fundamentals first appeared in 1921, the year he defeated Lasker for the World Championship Title. Capablanca is widely regarded as the strongest chess player who ever lived, prior to the arrival of Bobby Fischer. World Champion Mikhail Botvinnik regarded Capablanca's Chess Fundamentals as the best chess book ever written. This is a reprint of the original "Chess Fundamentals" by Capablanca, as first published in 1921 and only a preface added by Capablanca in 1934. The reader here can feel confident that this reprint contains the exact, complete words of Capablanca. Unlike other reprints, not one word has been changed or omitted.
