The Chess Monthly 1857
Edited by Morphy & Fiske


"No, this magazine was not forerunner of our contemporary, but an American magazine launched in the same year as the First American Congress in New York, where Paul Morphy triumphed over Louis Paulsen. It ran as far as the fifth month of the fifth year (like Chronicle), also in the old-style descriptive notation), and the first volume proudly bears the names of Morphy and Daniel Fiske, the secretary of the Congress. The respective input of the joint editors has since been the subject of some academic debate but in 1857 more pressing matters were being discussed, such as the ""lives of Great Chess Men"" Ponziani and Philidor (not to mention the not/so-famous Augustus, Duke of Brunswick-Lueneberg - who went under the chess pseudonym of Gustavus Selenenus and was an ancestor of Morphy's famous opera-victim), the soundness of the en passant rule, and whether any New York player had the bottle to take on Morphy with only a pawn and move odds.
