If someone owns this game, and wants to send me ( some digital pictures that I can add for illustration to the page? That would be nice, thanks!

And who knows information on the name of the inventor?

You should include it in the category for playable with normal pieces with different setup, since that seem to be the only difference

This is a double excellent for this game.

The first excellent goes to Hans for digging this game out and posting it here.

The second goes to the game design: The inventor has really thought hard of the initial position, and it makes a fine game. There is a lot of tactical tension in the setup, but there are no obvious exploits. Great game!
