František Hladík together with Václav Císař and Jan Berkovec (all from Pilsen) published the collection "Sbírka úloh plzeňských autorů" (1940) of their chess problems. There is an appendix "Nástin rozboru šachové skladby" by Hladík on solving chess problems. A pdf of the book is available from Václav Kotěšovec's website "Chess Problem Links." Today's problem appears as No. 238.
