- This cover is from the 1947 edition. The book was originally published in 1900 with a plain cover. I couldn't determine if the photo was one of Lasker's choosing (Lasker had died in 1941) - I was informed that the photo appears in the New York 1924 tournament book - or if it was one of the publisher's choosing. But either way it's a photograph of Lasker pondering what appears to be a composed problem. I tried searching both problem databases and game databases for the position but with no luck.
Here is the position with White on the bottom.
Does anyone happen to know the source, if there his one?
