Yes, this is where I discovered it this morning. I liked the problem and thought it was well-fitted to this thread! E-mail spam can be useful at times!

Perhaps you also know the following classic

Dunno about your query. Still researching...
You should e-mail Popov!

I spotted that too. I assume whomever wrote the 1283 book slightly rearranged that Al-Adli position for publication.

Thanks for all of that.

It's funny I can understand a 1283 study on his site, better than the translations into English there!

Also I particularly like mates of the king in a corner by a knight, when the king is behind a pawn of his own colour: the site seemingly features the first one of these too, from 1837. That was good to see.
