  Pawn and Two: <zanzibar> The tournament book, <Budapest 1896 International Chess Tournament>, Caissa Editions, 1994, edited by John C. Owen, has the moves,< 38...Qa5 39.Kf1 Qa7 40.Bd2 Qa6 41.Qb2 Ra7 42.Bc3 Qc8 43.Qc2 Qa8 44.Qb2 Qc8 45.Qc2 Qa8> Drawn by repetition.

These same moves are in the original tournament book, <Das Internationale Schachmeisterturnier in Budapest 1896>, done in German, by Geza Maroczy in 1941! The Budapest Chess Association determined to commemorate its first great tournament by having Geza Maroczy, the last living contestant, prepare a book in German of the scores, which were either in his, or in the Association's possession.

Jul-02-16  zanzibar: <Pawn and Two> Thanks (as always).

So, Maroczy wasn't even commissioned to prepare the TB until 1941?!

So then, given how thin the coverage was that I could find, most of the games remained unpublished up till then?

  Pawn and Two: <zanzibar> In the tournament book, <Budapest 1896 International Chess Tournament>, Caissa Editions, 1994, edited by John C. Owen, an explanation is given regarding the tournament book for Budapest 1896. It mentions that all four of the play-off games had been published in contemporary periodicals, but only 26 of the 78 tournament games were in circulation. The other 52 games would probably have been lost had not the Budapest Chess Association in 1941 sought to commemorate its first great tournament by having Geza Maroczy, the last living contestant, prepare a book in German of the scores, which were either in his or the Association's possession. It was noted that clearly a tournament book had been intended years before as most of the games already had notes by Charousek, who had died in 1900, and Maroczy then provided the notes for the remaining games.
