Dec-16-05  chesscrazy: Did this game win the brilliancy prize?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Calli: Yes, it did win the brilliancy prize. Not a great game, but I like Burn's 28...Rh8!

The prize, by the way, was donated by Morphy's old opponent FH Lewis. See Morphy vs FH Lewis, 1858

Apr-28-16  zanzibar: I guess someone else shares <Calli>'s opinion about the brilliancy of this game:

<... Mr. T. C. Cross continues to act as hon. secretary. The latter gentleman is an energetic officer, and also chess editor of the Times and Mirror. In a late issue of that paper Mr. Cross reprinted the game between Messrs. Burn v. Taubenhaus, which took the brilliancy prize at Nottingham. He thought that "scanty praise was grudgingly " bestowed on Mr. Burn by the editor of one of our contemporaries. Mr. Cross, however, should use some discretion if he presumes to express an opinion about chess, otherwise than as a compiler of news, and we would advise him in future to submit his proofs on technical matters to such able local men as Messrs. Fedden, Burt, or Harsant, or to copy without comment matter which is notoriously beyond his sphere.>
