Engraving of the Staunton and Saint-Amant Match, 1843

Not long ago, at an open book fair, I bought, as storm clouds approached, "British Chess" by Kenneth Matthews. It seems that the book came out in 1948. An interesting feature of the book is the reproduction of pictures and illustrations--some of which are hundreds of years old.

The picture above is from the book, which is a nineteenth century engraving of the match between Staunton and Saint-Amant, in Paris 1843.
