Meredith. A beautiful but hard problem by two eminent composers. One may for long try in vain to find a mate after 1.. Kd6, but there is none. Therefore the key has to block that flight. 1. Qc5? Ke4 leaves too many new flights and Q-checks don't work either, so 1. Qb4! sacrificing the wN and threatening 2. Nc7 (3. Qe6#) Kf6(Kf5) 3. Qf4#. If Black takes the wN 1.. KxN the quiet 2. Bd7 (3. Qd4#) e5 3. e4#; 1.. e6 2. Qf4+ Kxd5 3. Qd4#; 1.. Kf5 2. Qf4+ Ke6 3. Nc7#; 1.. Ke6 2. Nc7+ 3. Qf4#. Of course harder than two stars! It took me a rather long time to hit on the solution, had to use a board, and it felt like four stars :-)

Sigmund Herland (* 27.9.1865 in Vienna, † 15.8.1954 in Bucharest) Austrian-Romanian composer and player, see wikipedia arz, en, ru. "A collection of 327 selected problems by Sigmund Herland was published by Ekaterina Yaremska-Iliescu (available online, today's problem is reprinted as No. 180). Sigmund Herland composed in all genres (studies, direct or fairy problems, in Bohemian or strategic style) and was often very creative and original. Sigmund Herland also composed what can be considered as the forerunner of the first cyclic Babson task (composed by Peter Hoffmann, Schach 2005). The story of this problem, published by Alain C. White in the "Theory of Pawn Promotion," was evoked by Steven Dowd in his "Skittles" on ChessCafe."

Wolfgang Pauly (* 15.8.1876 in Dohna\Dresden, † 3.3.1934 in Bucharest) German-Romanian composer, see wikipedia de, it, lv, ru. "Wolfgang Pauly composed about between 4000 and 5000 problems in all genres. He collaborated with Alain C. White on several works of the Christmas series: "The White Rooks" (1910), "The Theory of Pawn Promotion" (1912) or "Asymmetry" (1927). A first compilation of his works was published in 1948 by Dr. Niemeijer, under the title "Zo sprak Wolfgang Pauly". A much extended compilation, including letters and problems from Pauly's own archives was published by Marian Stere in 2001 under the title "Wolfgang Pauly - Challenge of a Legacy". The Wolfgang Pauly archives are now at the Koninklijke Bibliotheek - National library of the Netherlands. He is the author of problem themes such as the Perpetuum Mobile (also called the Pauly theme)."
