  wordfunph: "One evening merits special mention. Jansa took me to visit Master Pithart. There I stood in awe, surrounded by what must be among the largest collection of chess books in the world; the one-room apartment and foyer were literally covered wall to wall and ceiling to floor with quality chess books, the possession of which would certainly be he envy of every chess player.

Pithart brews a fine cup of coffee and its serving brought a new surprise. He brought out a very special Czech china set, one of only ten in existence. On each cup and saucer the image of many of the world's famous grandmasters were caricatured, including Gligoric, Spassky, Fischer, Hort and others, made alive by a witty hand. Karpov, Jansa and Lombardy were not portrayed in this collection."

- GM William Lombardy (Tallinn 1975)
