  oao2102: Apparently Morphy & Loewenthal played the same exact game sixteen years later :)

Morphy vs Lowenthal, 1858

Dec-29-13  thomastonk: FAKE! This is not a game between Morphy and Loewenthal. It is neither contained in Löwenthal's collection (!) of Morphy's games, London 1860, nor in Max Lange's 3rd edition, Leipzig 1894, nor in Maróczy's collection from 1925.

But it can be found in "Schachzeitung" 1857, p 240-241, as well as in von der Lasa's "Berliner Schacherinnerungen", Leipzig 1859, p 33-34. It has been played between Baron Tassilo von Heydebrand und der Lasa and Carl Friedrich Von Jaenisch on September 1, 1842 in Berlin. I will submit a correction slip.

Dec-31-13  sneaky pete: Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. I submitted this game in June 2006 when I was young and foolish. I am old and foolish now.

David Lawson published the game (and the dubious
Morphy vs Loewenthal, 1858) as "Unknown Paul Morphy Games" in the British Chess Magazine, August 1978. He gives Dufresne, Schachfreund 1862, as his source for both games.

The 1981 Oxford Encyclopedia, edited by Levy and O'Connell, published the two questionable games on page 288. Their source is the 1909 edition of Loewenthal's collection of Morphy games.

If only I had leafed back to page 77 of that same Oxford Encyclopedia, I would have found the present game as one played between Lasa and Jaenisch in 1842 (Schachzeitung 1857).
