Event table notes

Event data
Place: Paris
Start date: July 1848
End date: Aug. 1848
 
Notes:
Giffen gives date as July 1848. The Sept. issue of the Chess Player's Chronicle says it took place 'a few weeks since'. La Régence (1849) gives 5 games between these players with dates from 23-26 July 1848 and another dated 6 Aug. 1848. It is not clear whether this last was part of the match. Kieseritzky also says in La Régence (1849, p.52) that on his last visit, Buckle beat him by one game.
