SNZZ Brno

Series SNZZ

First published: Nov. 3, 2003

Last Update: Sep 9, 2007

The series consists from booklets on various themes - openings, middle games, endgames, problems etc. Both the editor and the main author is Zdenek Zavodny, Brno. One booklet usually has 20-32 pages, all are well done by content and the booklets are cheap. 

Most of these booklets were originally published with color cover, probably in edition of 100-300 copies. Those with color covers can be considered like First Printings. In case of higher interest and when a booklet was sold out soon, the publisher made additional copies - such additional booklets were photocopied in unknown edition and they no longer have color cover - the cover is white, from the same kind of paper like the other text. These copies can be considered like Second Printings. In seldom occasions was the original text slightly corrected or updated. However, there are booklets which appear just in color covers and on other side, some of them have the white cover only (already the 1st printing was with white cover).
