This a reprint of the 1913 G. Bell edition of Löwenthal’s book, which was in itself a reprint of the original book. It was written shortly after Morphy’s return to the USA in 1859 following his triumphal tour of Europe; and it should be added that the book was written with Morphy’s co-operation. So it is a valuable record of what a contemporary rival thought of Morphy’s games. The notes of the 150+ games are fairly sketchy, however, though there is an interesting pen-picture of Morphy as a person.
