Aug-13-07  Cactus: What is 'THE FIELD'?
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: I think it was a chess magazine, previously published or edited by Wilhelm Steinitz. But Steinitz died 1900...
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gejewe: "The Field" was a newspaper with a famous chess column, that has been done by Steinitz, and later also by his arch-enemy Hoffer.

  Gejewe: Just looked it up in Whyld's "Chess columns - A list " [ Olomouc 2002 ] Editors of the chess column :
Williams 1853-1854 ; Boden 1870-1873 ; De Vere 1871 ; Steinitz 1873-1882 ; Hoffer 1882-1913 ; Burn 1913-1925 ; Smith 1925-1935 ; du Mont 1935-1955 ; Barden 1955-1994 The notes in this game thus stem from Amos Burn.
