The Exploits and Triumphs in Europe of Paul Morphy the Chess Champion

The Exploits and Triumphs in Europe of Paul Morphy the Chess Champion - Frederick Milnes Edge I liked this quite a bit and learned about what actually happened while Mophy was in Europe. It's a short book and there is very little detail about any of the games. I found it interesting to see the published letters about the Staunton affair. On the other hand it did get a little bit bored with hearing about what was essentially a dumb argument, but I could understand the desire to put a definitive version of their side of the story out there.
