The first collection in English 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.
