|Feb-15-17|| ||zanzibar: Hi, <jnpope>... |
Let's try dropping the suggestion here to start -
I believe there's a problem with the <American Chess Bulletin (ACB) (1914) v11> linked at <chess archeology>:
It's the version from Princeton, but much, if not all, seems corrupt to me.
Luckily, Haithi also has the Harvard version of the issue, which seems OK.
If you could be so kind as to doublecheck me on this, and perhaps update your links, I would be obliged.
|Feb-15-17|| ||zanzibar: Quick followup:
Compare doing a search on <Jasnogrodsky> for the two different versions.
|Feb-16-17|| ||jnpope: I have updated the ACB entries on the CA library page. Thanks for info <Z>.|
|Apr-13-17|| ||zanzibar: Hi ya,
Just wondering about your WSZ (1909) link over at CA:
This doesn't look like a viewable copy. Is one available?
|Apr-13-17|| ||zanzibar: Maybe you meant this link?
|Apr-13-17|| ||jnpope: Nope. I didn't mean that link because it didn't exist at the time I created the page. Hathi and Google continually add things. At the time I created the updated library page all Google had was that placeholder link.|
I'm glad to see Hathi finally got around to adding the book (which will bubble up into Google soon).
|Apr-13-17|| ||zanzibar: <jnpope> then there's lots of other gaps with non-viewables books aren't there?|
Anyways, I think you should mark off the non-public domain (or, rather, the non-viewable) links somehow - to save me a trip.
|Apr-13-17|| ||jnpope: The original entry was in a box with a grey background to denote its placeholder status (which I just removed when I updated the link). If you notice any new additions feel free to mention them here and I'll add them to the library.|
|Apr-13-17|| ||jnpope: Baltische Schachblätter, 1910 v12, appears to be the only other placeholder entry.|
|Apr-13-17|| ||zanzibar: Right-o <jn> - will pipe up as the occasion merits.|
We both know it's tough keeping up with these moving targets.
|May-29-17|| ||zanzibar: Hi, I've sent you email with some additional articles for the O'Keefe Timeline.|
(Four days of Chicago Tribune coverage of <Vienna (1899)>).
Hope you can get them in as updates.
|Sep-19-17|| ||MissScarlett: Uploaded a couple of Pillsbury games from the same simul:|
Pillsbury vs J F Ramos, 1903
Pillsbury vs S Mlotkowski, 1903
Do you have the full date?
|Aug-31-18|| ||jnpope: I do not have a date for that exhibition and those games. I do have the game that Daniel P. Sailer won in the same exhibition. I assume you got the Ramos and Mlotkowki games from the Washington Evening Star. I found all three games in the JGW collection scrapbook for the Philadelphia Times and North American chess columns (a sloppy collection containing a mix of columns not just from those two papers but also additional Philadelphia papers). The games came from the North American columns (distinct column style), but sadly the North American columns were undated making it rather difficult to even place a ballpark date on those games. The best I have is as you have... October 1903.|
Sorry for the tardiness of the reply. I was MIA for about a year and I'm slowly easing back into my chess duties... and before you ask, the Pillsbury books (two vols) are nearing completion, however, as late as yesterday (8/30) I recovered all the games from a Midwest blindfold simultaneous and was busy adding those to the 1899 section in vol 1 last night. When things like that fall into your lap it makes it difficult to halt the research and publish!
|Aug-31-18|| ||jnpope: I'm not sure whom to thank for renewing my membership. I noticed it yesterday when I was checking info on Budapest 1896, in particular the claim that Tarrasch won a brilliancy prize for Popiel-Tarrasch. I have found ZERO evidence of such a prize being offered during the tournament. It doesn't show up in the Deutsche Schachzeitung, British Chess Magazine or any newspaper source I have access to for 1896. Nor could I find it being belatedly awarded in 1897. And it is not mentioned in Maroczy's book of the tournament|
But I digress.
I thank the individual who did that mystery renewal on my behalf.
|Aug-31-18|| ||zanzibar: <JN> do you have this Pillsbury loss found by <paderamo>:|

|Sep-01-18|| ||jnpope: <z>: Yes, I already have that game, but thanks for checking.|
|Sep-01-18|| ||zanzibar: Seeing that <paderamo> only did the clipping 18 hours ago I thought I had a chance.|
Not much of one, but a chance nonetheless!
|Sep-01-18|| ||paderamo: I have not even updated my web page with that link. Newspapers.com occasionally re-scans their newspapers. In the process they delete anything that has been clipped. A number of links for the Nebraska State Journal do not work. Hundreds of links for the Chicago Daily Tribune need to be re-clipped. The Nebraska State Journal has had more years added in newspapers.com and I am in the process of clipping them. Maybe I can find more Pillsbury games.|
|Sep-01-18|| ||paderamo: Also, great to have this forum back!|
|Sep-01-18|| ||paderamo: The Pillsbury simul may have been on 24 October 1903. From the 23 October 1903 edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer:|
|Sep-01-18|| ||jnpope: <paderamo>, negative on that. The games with Mlotkowski, et. al., are from an earlier exhibition:|
<Pillsbury opened the season at the Franklin with a nineteen board seance. He lost two—J. F. Ramos and D. P. Sailer. Drew one with Hugh Roberts. Won sixteen from J. W. Young, R. H. Ramsey, G. H. Stout, T. Zook, W. F. Reed, F. B. Driver, A. Goldberg, S. Mlotkowski, J. P. Fahey, S. W. Bampton, S. R. Jacob, W. K. Barclay, W. P. Thomas, S. T. Sharp, R. Lloyd, and J. H. Rhoads. Of the games the champion won the one with Stasch Mlotkowski was the best played, and it looked at one time as if the local matador had the better partie.

(North American column undated)>>
I suspect it was closer to the top of October based upon:
<Pillsbury will go to Philadelphia in a few days and give his next exhibition at the Franklin Chess Club of that City.

|Sep-02-18|| ||jnpope: I guess it's about time to make this public...
I have just released a Chess Archaeology treatment of the 1834 Bourdonnais-McDonnell matches, including what is probably the first original research into these matches in over 150 years (at least since 1864 as far as I know).
|Sep-03-18|| ||Boomie: <jnpope: I guess it's about time to make this public... |

That is super cool. A study of their matches is a must for any serious student.
To jazz up the commentary, you might credit Morphy who wrote the analysis for the Ledger.
|Sep-18-18|| ||Tabanus: <jnpope> Amazing job.|
|Sep-18-18|| ||jnpope: <Tabanus>, thanks. Hopefully it will hold up to further scrutiny; I'd hate to think I overlooked something obvious!|
