First published in 1900. London 1899 was without a doubt one of the very strongest tournaments ever held on British soil. Almost every great master of the day was present including the past and reigning world champions. It proved to be the swan song of the old champion Steinitz but for Lasker it was a glittering success which propelled him way beyond the other grandmasters of the time. London 1899 goes down in history as one of the great Lasker victories along with St Petersburg 1896, St Petersburg 1914 and New York 1924. The 1896 and 1924 events are both republished in the Hardinge Simpole series.
