    I picked up four books for a few quid in a remote junk shop.

    I offer a very brief review spotting errors and then link what I can to RHP games.

    One the books was ‘Modern End Game Studies’ by Hans Bouwmeester.
    Possibly the best of the lot. I solved and fell in love with the first study.

    It was composed by P. Heuacker and it is White to play and win.

    Very impressive endgame piece by Heuacker. Nothing like finding some gems in an old book. I'd say your "few quid" was well spent.
