Event data
Place: Paris
Start date: 1856
End date: Mar. 1856
 
Notes:
The Illustrated London News (15 Mar. 1856, p.287) and the Era (23 Mar. 1856, p.13) say that de Rivière had just won a match against Schulten in Paris. The 5 Apr. 1856 issue gives the score, as does the Apr. 1856 issue of the Chess Player's Chronicle. I presume therefore, that the match finished in Mar. 1856.
