Staunton, Howard. The Chess Tournament. London, 1852.
There are several scans of this book in Google Books. The first copy I downloaded had large sections of the book out of sequence, so I located a better copy:-
- The Chess Tournament: A Collection of the Games Played 'H. G. Bohn, 1852 - Chess - 382 pages'
The first 90 pages of the book are Staunton's own account of the tournament. The rest of the book (the 382 pages mentioned in the book's description) contains the moves of the games plus light annotations by Staunton. To help me find my way around Staunton's account, I constructed the following table of contents.
Also on Google Books are two related works from the 19th century:-
A Review of "The Chess Tournament"
'author [anonymous], 1852 - 26 pages';
'With some remarks on the attacks upon the London Chess Club, contained in the introduction to that work. By a Member of the London Chess Club.'
- Das Schach-Turnier zu London im Jahre 1851: nach Staunton's Chess tournament 'Veit und comp., 1852 - Chess - 152 pages'
Staunton's edition was published again toward the end of the 20th century:-
The Chess Tournament: London, 1851
'Batsford, 1986 - Chess - 377 pages'
- The Chess Tournament - London 1851 'Hardinge Simpole Publishing, 2003 - Games & Activities - 484 pages'
How close are these to the original? Google Books doesn't offer a digital copy.
