The Exploits and Triumphs, in Europe, of Paul Morphy, the Chess Champion Overview

This book describes Morphy's trip to Europe, i. e. , England and France, where he wanted to play the European Champion Staunton, a match that never came about as the correspondence included in this book shows. He did play - and beat - virtually every other strong player in Europe though, and tales of these matches and people make up a large part of this book. After his triumphs in Europe, Paul Morphy was considerd the unofficial World Chess Champion, as official championship tournaments were only held from 1886.
