The Staunton-Morphy Controversy

Edward Winter

Below are links to four feature articles by us about the non-occurrence of a chess match between Howard Staunton and Paul Morphy. Particular attention is paid to Frederick M. Edge, an active participant in the affair who accompanied Morphy during most of the latter’s stay in England and France in 1858-59.
