After having conquered chess America, Paul Morphy issued a challenge to European chess players and traveled there to play the best players of the game, and in particular wanting to face Howard Staunton, the English master who was widely considered to be the best player in the world.

The present book, written by his private secretary, Frederick Milnes Edge, includes accounts and letters of the efforts of Morphy and his supporters to have him face the best players. As you will read, not all of the efforts succeeded.

In the second part of the book, we include a shorter book by C. A. Buck, Paul Morphy - His Later Life, which covers Morphy's life after returning to the US and giving up chess.'
