Jul-02-14  Lossmaster: For what it's worth, Black's name is spelled "Mac Cam" in Tartakower's book "Br√©viaire des √©checs", which features this miniature. The tournament was held in Dundee.

  sachistu: The game is also given in the British Chess Magazine 1893 page 235. The cross table is given on page 233. Black's name was Robert McCann. I'll submit a correction slip to complete the name.
