T.R.Dawson schreibt in Ultimate Themes S.27: No.172 has a complicated history. Shinkman undoubtedly originated the theme. I have had a m.s. copy of his 28-mate solution since 1910, but apparently published it only in the Golden Argosy, 1929. Previous publications are, therefore, a 25-mate case (Black Kc4) by T.R.Dawson, Chess Amateur, 1919; practically W.A.Shinkman's 28-mate case (Black Kd4) by B. Zastrow, Schwalbe, 1928; and then Shinkman himself. O.T.Blathy has a 28-mate case (Black Kc6) in the Schwalbe 1931. The republication of the theme in P.F.S. brought out the lovely record above on the diagram.
