Paul Morphy and the golden age of chess by William Ewart Napier( Book )

9 editions published between 1957 and 2018 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every chess player knows of the meteoric career of Paul Morphy, the New Orleans prodigy, who vanquished the mighty paladins of chess and became the first uncrowned champion of the world. And everyone will enjoy reading about the games, the men, and the scene when Murphy reigned supreme. This work spans the period from the middle 1800's to the early 1900's, including choice morsels extending slightly beyond the fringes in each direction; for example Capablanca and grandmasters of his day are set off in focus against the earlier period. Napier excels at bringing to life the chess giants of his and Morphy's time, relating their human foibles and peccadilos, and even their cardinal sins. He makes the era seem what, in fact, it may have been, the Golden Age of Chess." --
