  offramp: Something odd about this. Either 35 or 36.Bf7 wins straight away. But is the final position a win for white? Perhaps the score has been garbled.

  sneaky pete: <offramp> From Keene and Coles, Howard Staunton (BCM Quarterly, 1975), note after "39.Kg2 .. and wins": "So says the surviving score, but after 39... Ne6! it's very hard for White to make progress. A better line would be 39.Qd8! e.g. 39... Ne6 40.Qd6 Nxf4 41.e6 .. which seems to win without difficulty."
