This book about the best chess player of the 19th century analyzes Paul Morphy's games and positions in depth to get to the essence of his style. Chapters discuss 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. With large, clear diagrams, "this book should take its place among first-rank historical chess works." — USA Today Sports Network. 15 halftones.
