Capablanca and Alekhine on Rabinovich

It turns out that my favorable treatment of 'The Russian Endgame Handbook' by Ilya Rabinovich...

...is in good company:-

Ilya Rabinovich (1891-1942) has a rare, probably unique, distinction: he wrote a book, Endshpil (two editions, published in 1927 and 1938), which was hailed as 'excellent' by both Capablanca and Alekhine.

From 7873. 'Excellent' on Chesshistory.com.
