It is Dover who always makes changes in the text of the original book..


* Interesting. I have several Dover editions. Specifically, what books
are you saying Dover has altered, and in specifically what ways?


All of them. Compare any Dover book with the original and you will
find important changes.


I asked for specifics, Sam, and again you just give a blanket
generalization. Tell us exactly what are the "important changes" in,
for example, the Dover editions of the following books:

"The World's Great Chess Games" (2nd edition) by Reuben Fine (McKay
1976 edition vs. Dover 1983)
"Emanuel Lasker: The Life of a Chess Master" by J. Hannak (London 1959
edtion vs. Dover 1991)
"Lasker's Greatest Chess Games 1899-1914" by Reinfeld and Fine (Black
Knight Press 1935 edition vs. Dover 1965)
"Great Moments in Modern Chess" by Reuben Fine" (McKay 1948 vs. Dover
1965)
"Reshevsky's Best Games of Chess" by Samuel Reshevsky (Chess Review
1948 vs. Dover 1960)
"The Joys of Chess" by Reinfeld (Collier 1961 vs. Dover 1974)

Still waiting for your answer, Sam. Since you assure us that Dover
altered /all/ its reprints, you /must/ have examined them all, right?
Please tell us what changes they made to the above titles.
