Todo: 1860-1869

Some tourneys from this period have already been published, but are not completely known and may benefit from additional information or research:

Other tourneys range from the almost entirely unknown to the reasonably well known, requiring only some additional work to be published:

  • Belfast Weekly Whig, 1863. Not known. (This is probably the weekly edition of Northern Whig, publ. Saturdays. See notice in The Northern Whig on 1862-03-22, that the Weekly N. W. has set apart a column for chess. The contents of the column is frequently summarized in Northern Whig: on February 6, 1863, a notice on p. [2] says that tomorrow’s issue of Weekly Northern Whig will contain problem tourney-related information.)

  • Brooklyn Standard, 1861. Only requirements known so far. (Brooklyn Standard seems to have been a weekly paper, while Brooklyn Daily Standard was a daily.)

  • Le Palamède Française, 1865. Another messy tourney in that several judges stated they had not been involved in the published report.

  • Wiener Schachgesellschaft, 1863? Winner is known (H. Lehner), but fairly little else.

  • Wilke’s Spirt of the Times, 1868? Some requirements are known, but it is not clear if they only were suggestions, or of they were actually used for a tournament.

  • La Vogue Parisienne. Not known. (mentioned in NBSz v. 6, 1869, p. 62. There seems to have been a publication of that name published in Paris from 1866 to 1870.)
