BRASO I RIUS, Jordi. Chess books in Spain (1770-1899): Historical bibliography. Investig. bibl [online]. 2018, vol.32, n.75, pp.47-67. ISSN 2448-8321.

This paper offers a bio-bibliographic repertory and historical bibliometric study of works on chess in Spain from the late eighteenth century to the late nine-teenth century. The methodology employed entails research and analysis of documentary sources of the period and current library databases mainly in Spain. The subsequent interpretative phase and the bibliometric analysis of four factors (period of publication, place of publication, originality vs. translation and typology) serves to describe each of the chess works published in Spain. Moreover, it also allows contextualization of the works within the social milieu. In this way, the bibliometric study reinforces the interpretative analysis of Spanish chess production.

Keywords : Bibliometric Study; Bibliography; Bio-Bibliography; Chess; Historical Bibliometrics; Nine-teenth Century Spain.
