Mainly interested in chess problems, but also in digging around in old chess sources.

   Jun-07-20 Stella vs Staunton, 1855
ath: Nice! You're a decent way on your way to an article, I think.
   Nov-19-10 C Stanley vs Saint-Amant, 1852 (replies)
ath: This game was played on Sept. 7, 1852, at Delmonico's in New York. It was reprinted in Stanley's chess column in The Albion on Sept. 18, but from that single source it is not clear that it was played in a match. (See the Jack O'Keefe Project at Chess Archaeology for a scan of the ...

ath: And rats again. I can't make correct links myself ...
   Dec-24-08 Steinitz - Chigorin World Championship Match (1889) (replies)
ath: <kevin86> Looks like all games are here. The match was planned for 20 games, but the remaining three were not played (as match games) as Steinitz clearly had won.

ath: <voorlandt> I have only about half-a-dozen games over and above what is available here already, but as they're all against totally unknown players, I rather doubt they merit inclusion here. Lasa is well known, and Jenay at least half-known: that's why I submitted them.
   May-07-07 Duke Karl / Count Casabianca vs Kolisch, 1859 (replies)
ath: I wonder ... I just came across this score in Schachzeitung (score 1332, 1859 p 299), but here White is said to be the duo of the Duke of Braunschweig and Count Casabianca. Unfortunately, nothing is said about where it was played -- but it would be nice to imagine that Kolisch had some ...
   Apr-22-07 Pillsbury vs A Reggio, 1902 (replies)
ath: Let's tweak those numbers a bit further: Digging further into contemporary sources, I find a notice in Deutsche Schachzeitung, October, 1902 (p. 321), that there seem to have been two MacCutcheon prizes at 500 francs. The one for the best defense was awarded to Mason for his game ...
   Aug-30-06 NN vs Allgaier, 1809 (replies)
ath: <EmperorAtahualpa> According to Oxford Companion to Chess, Allgaier was one of the operators of the Turk *after* the death of its creator, von Kempelen. At that time it seems to have been owned by Maelzel, who toured with it in Europe and the USA.
   Apr-16-06 Schlechter vs Lasker, 1910 (replies)
ath: This score doesn't look right. Both Wiener Schachzeitung (Marco, 1910 p. 5 and 62) and Pester Lloyd (Lasker, 1910-01-11, p. 6) say White's move 68 was h5-h6+, as <euripides> already noted. What source got this wrong?
   Mar-01-06 Tarrasch / von Bardeleben / B Lask vs Boehlke / Naumann / von Scheve, 1881
ath: Actually, it *is* Böhlke according to both Deutsche Schachzeitung and the congress book.
