|Mar-14-15|| ||zanzibar: <A tip for posting FEN positions without activating a diagram: replace one of the slashes with the code / - that's the code for slash, and it will turn into a regular slash in the post, but this way the FEN string won't turn into a diagram. :)>|
Boy oh boy, could <CG> just provide us with a <pre></pre> tag? Pretty please?
|Mar-14-15|| ||zanzibar: The final issue of <Schachzeitung> was before it gets renamed to <Deutsche Schachzeitung> was in 1871:|
It's missing from the "master" list:
It seems to also be missing from Calli's list...
Game Collection: Deutsche Schachzeitung
It was a little tricky to find, a google book search on year fails. I used the volume number.
|Mar-15-15|| ||zanzibar: Another suggestion, if I may...
<Neue Berliner Schachzeitung v6 (1869)>
Instead of this copy:
to use this one:
The latter is mislabeled as volume 2, but it's readable. The copy you reference is in very poor scan-shape due to page bleed-through.
|Jul-15-15|| ||zanzibar: <jnpope>
It looks like <The Chess World v1 (March 1865)> is now online:
It could be added here:
Note that the missing volume, v1, is listed as from 1866, and the issue I found has date 1865.
I don't know if this is because v2 was delayed a year, or what other explanation is suggested - I haven't looked much beyond just finding the link.
|Aug-13-15|| ||zanzibar: <jnpope> Should I continue posting info in this forum for your wonderful Chess Library resources?|
DSZ (or SZ) (1871): Biographer Bistro (kibitz #12104)
|Aug-17-15|| ||jnpope: Yes. Keep posting! I'm working on updating the library section (hopefully I'll have a new page finished soon).|
|Sep-10-15|| ||TheFocus: <jnpope> <<Chessical:> <Pillsbury's comparative failure at St. Petersburg (1895/96) was felt very heavily by himself and his American fans. [...]
I have found another explanation as to his poor form.
It seems that Pillsbury encouraged by Steinitz, contracted with the St.Petersburg chess club to buy the copyright of the tournament's games for $600 dollars (about $17,000 in 2015 value). The deal soon went wrong as the games were anyway published by third parties making their value to Pillsbury effectively nugatory. This was a considerable financial loss top Pillsbury.>|
Covered in my 1996 Pillsbury book, pp20-21.>
Would you happen to know if those annotations are available anywhere? I have never seen them.
|Sep-11-15|| ||jnpope: The only game I've found with annotations attributed directly to Pillsbury and Steinitz is Pillsbury's draw against Lasker published in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, 1896.01.11, p5.|
|Sep-11-15|| ||TheFocus: Thank you, sir.|
|Sep-25-15|| ||jnpope: I just tagged a bunch of Philidor vs NN games here. None of them can be attributed as being played by Philidor and all of them appeared in the 1750 edition of his book <Analyse du jeu des Échecs>. Not sure how somebody goes about getting mis-attributed games removed from this site. The best I can do is identify the source material and post a comment in each game.|
Good news: during my little sojourn into 1700s I did locate a Philidor game not found in the Oxford Encyclopedia of Chess Games. All of the other games I found are represented in that tome.
Once CG starts deleting fake games I'll start posting real games...
|Dec-15-15|| ||jnpope: I've begun revamping the Library over at the CA website. I'm still conducting my year-end survey of all the new books Google has added over the years. |
The new format for the Library page is based on contributing library. I'm about 1/3rd complete. After this phase will be an attempt to color-code the entries to identify volumes which are incomplete.
|Dec-17-15|| ||thomastonk: <None of them can be attributed as being played by Philidor> I think it is even worse with other authors, say Gioachino Greco.|
<Once CG starts deleting fake games I'll start posting real games...> I wish you success!
<Are they still writing that book?> Before the book was delivered a third party ruined my motivation for further serious contributions. This goes on for years.
|Dec-17-15|| ||Tabanus: <Not sure how somebody goes about getting mis-attributed games removed from this site.> Just click on Error Correction Form (represented below each game, player, and tournament as "submit a correction slip") and leave your comments. I'm sure Daniel will listen.|
And thanks for your wonderful Chess Archaeology site!
|Dec-17-15|| ||TheFocus: Also list a source if you can. That really helps.|
|Dec-25-15|| ||wordfunph: <jnpope> Merry Christmas!|
|Jan-08-16|| ||zanzibar: And a quick note to you <jn>, I've found the new <Field> sources very helpful for <Baden-Baden (1870)>.|
|Jan-27-16|| ||zanzibar: <jn> I have various newspaper clips relating to <1st American Chess Congress (1857)>, including some NY Daily Tribunes missing from O'Keefe.|
I'd like to somehow convey them over.
|Jan-28-16|| ||zanzibar: Also, is there a way to indicate missing sections for the reference works in your great index page?|
Emanuel Lasker (kibitz #2094)
<ACB v7 (1910)> seems to lack about 10-20 pages (? some number, specifically p140).
A simple asterisk next to the link, with a footnote, would at least serve as a heads up.
|Jan-30-16|| ||jnpope: I'm definitely interested in the missing NY Daily Tribune coverage (not to mention any other coverage). I'll take whatever you have to offer.|
As for marking incomplete issues in the CA library... sounds good. I'll add something to denote that issue as being incomplete. I haven't had a chance to check every item for completeness, so if you notice any other issues with missing pages just let me know.
|Feb-09-16|| ||zanzibar: <JN> Sorry, I missed your response out of neglect by not checking back.|
Do you have an email or file-upload location? I could email them directly to you.
(If you wish, you can send me your email via a comment on my blog - since I moderate all comments, I'll delete the comment without publishing it.
Or would you prefer that I copy the scans to google drive and post links here? (Lots of ways to skin a cat...)
I'd like to set up a system where I can just send them off to you as I find 'em during research.
OK, let me know, and thanks.
|Feb-10-16|| ||jnpope: You should be able to send me an email to npope at my chessarch.com site.|
|Feb-10-16|| ||zanzibar: Thanks, I'll try to go through my notes and see at least a couple of articles over tomorrow.|
|Feb-11-16|| ||zanzibar: <jn> just sent two clippings for a start. Thanks.|
|Feb-13-16|| ||jnpope: Thanks! It worked. I grabbed a larger set of images from the Library of Congress, but please keep sending along anything you find.|
|Feb-14-16|| ||zanzibar: We're good to go then. Super.
Don't expect to sent too many updates, but it's nice to know the channel is open. Thanks again.
