  ChessCoachClark: Laszlo Polgar included this game in CHESS: 5334 Problems, Combinations and Games as Game #4543 on page 831, but didn't identify which Lasker, Edward or Emanuel.
Dec-27-15  TheFocus: Edward would have been 11 years old in 1896, so, it is probably Emanuel.
Premium Chessgames Member
  jnpope: Most certainly Emanuel.

Wiener Schachzeitung, 1900.07, p154, gives Lasker's opponent as "L..." and the game ends with 21.Ng6+.

"Emanuel Lasker", v3, The Chess Player 1976, p49, has the game ending as 19...g5 20.Ng6+.

  MissScarlett: <"Emanuel Lasker", v3, The Chess Player 1976, p49, has the game ending as 19...g5 20.Ng6+.>

Does it give the details as <Moscow (1896)>?

This is game #461 in <Whyld (1998)>, the partculars being <simul Manchester, December 1898>, which almost certainly dates it to December 16th. The source, the <Westminster Gazette> of December 31st 1898, p.3, confirms: <A game from Mr. Lasker's simultaneous play at Manchester, which he kindly forwarded to us...>

  MissScarlett: I see now this is game #368 and #461 in <Whyld (1998)>, both against <L>, the first given as <simul Moscow, 4 February 1896> citing the <WSZ> as mentioned by Pope.

  MissScarlett: The <Manchester Weekly Times> of December 16th 1898 (the day of the simul), p.7, gives a 25-strong list of the players who <have signified their willingness to take a board>. There are two <L>s - <F. Loewenthal> and <C. J. B. Lowe>.
