Julien Guisle (02-11-1910 - 09-06-2010) French composer

Julien Guisle was a bibliophile, collector and problemist.
His chess bookstore was known as the only one of its kind in Paris after WWII, as reminded us Christophe Bouton on his blog.
He composed the famous problem below under the pseudonym Julian Quike. The theme of the tourney was Rex Solus vs all 16 white pieces (which implies that there are cooks if you remove any of the 16 white units).
