Paul Morphy and the Evolution of Chess Theory
WARNING: May Contain Small Parts.

This book, about the best chess player of the nineteenth centure, analyzes Paul Morphy's games and positions in depth to reveal the essence of his style. The first collection in Egnlish of all 413 of Morphy's known games, the volume discusses other players of the period (Adolph Anderssen and Wilhelm Steinitz), Morphy's rare blunders and omissions, as well as selected endgames and openings. Also included are a 27-page essay on Morphy by Steinitz, and a series of letters between Alexander Alekhine and Eugene Znosko-Borovsky debating Morphy's chess style.

Enhanced with large, clear diagrams, "this book should take its place among first-rank historical chess works." --USA Today Sports Network
