I'm trying to compile a concise list of the best classic chess instruction manuals. By classic I mean old books that have stood the test of time, and were good enough to have since been rereleased in algebraic notation. So no present day authors.

Any ideas?

Common sense in chess by Em.Lasker

Basic chess endings by R.Fine

Alot of Nimzo material.

Simple Chess by Michael Stean - not that old (1978) but certainly a classic and now re-released in algebraic.

Chess Fundamentals by Capablanca (but don't get the butchered version by De Firmian).
