Oct-11-08  kereru: I find it difficult to believe that black resigned in the final position. Possibly the rest of the moves were not recorded.

While 365Chess doesn't have the complete game score (only 16 moves also) it says that the game lasted 32 moves overall:

  SwitchingQuylthulg: <Karpova> It so happens that 365Chess indicates number of plies rather than number of moves. 16 moves equals 32 plies.
Jul-26-17  kereru: Found this piece in the Illustrated London News, June 23 1865, page 619.

"The remainder of the game, which Mr. Hirschfeld won, was not recorded". So why did they even bother to publish these moves?
