    If we are going to pay postage, why can't you ship to other parts of the world?

    If you're willing to ship to other parts of the world (U.S.) if we pay for it, I'd probably be interested in the French Tarrasch and the Spanish Gambits, once I figure out what postage would cost.

    I could but my feeling is the postage will be too much and then there is the problem of how is it paid as I need UK stamps.

    Although if someone really wants them its not a problem.

    Benoni.

    Why am I getting rid of these. They are 20 years old and this week I replaced my entire collection of opening books with new ones but they are still good. I have used them up until now and they haven't hurt my rating so anyone from about 1600-2000 that wants to improve will find them useful.

    Below 1600 and they might be too technical for you at the moment. You would be better off studying tactics and using a more general opening book like Batsford Modern Chess Openings, a book I find invaluable for those lines I play against less often.
