book about famous chess player
  • Although most of the elements were known to me, the book I liked a lot, since I admire unlimited Mr. Morphy.

  • Originally released as 'Morphy Gleanings' ("Glean" means to gather or collect.) in 1932 by David McKay, 'The Unknown Morphy' is a collection of various pieces of memorabilia associated with the great chess player Paul Morphy. After publishing 'Morphy's Games Of Chess' in 1916, Sergeant wanted to write another book about Morphy, so he continued to collect addition material and eventually forged what he found into the book you see now. Although the pickings were very slim, I did find a few new things that were interesting. Part I is 29 pages of biographical information about Morphy. If you've read Lawson's 'The Pride And Sorrow Of Chess', most of this will be familiar to you. Part II contains 3 new (at the time) games; 3 level games; 6 odds games; 22 casual games at odds; 2 endings; and 1 of the Morphy vs. Deacon games, with a couple of pages of background information about it. Part III includes 15 of the Labourdonnais vs. MacDonnell games annotated by Morphy for 'The New York Ledger' in 1859-60. Part IV is 9 pages of correspondence written by or about Morphy. Mainly letters about the Staunton match; and Paulsen's desire to have a rematch with Morphy. Part V is 6 pages of references by others, in an attempt to show Morphy the man, not just a chess player. The book also contains 6 illustrations; the Morphy families' coat-of-arms; and part of the Morphy families' genealogy tree. Overall, probably an interesting book for people new to Morphy, but you're going to see a lot of repetition if you've read Lawson's or similar books already.
