  MissScarlett: This is the score that appears in the <Oxford Encylopedia of Chess Games Volume 1 1485-1866>, p.76, except that there the game abruptly ends <32. Kf2 Bh4+ 33. Kg1 Bg5....?> which I take to mean that the original score is unclear or confusing, presumably because <34...Kg6> is no longer possible. The game has brief notes by St. Amant so the source must be <Le Palam├Ęde>.

Staunton in the <CPC>, vol.iii, p.194, has the 34-move score, excepting <28...Bh4> for <...Bg5>, and <30...h5> for <...h6>.
