Event data
Place: London
Start date: 2 Oct. 1860
End date: Oct. 1860
 
Notes:
Di Felice and La Grande Storia degli Scacchi give +2-0=2 for Kolisch as does the Chess Monthly and Spinrad from the Oxford Encyclopaedia of Chess Games and the Schach Datenbank; the 21 Oct. 1860 issue of Bell's Life in London (p.7) gives this as a partial result to date. The Chess Player's Chronicle, La (Nouvelle) Régence and Spinrad from the Quarterly for Chess History give +4-0=3 for Kolisch. The 20 Oct. 1860 issue of the Illustrated London News says the match is in progress and the 28 Oct. 1860 issue of Bell's Life in London (p.8) says that Medley had 'resigned' the match, so I guess that the match took place entirely in the month of October. The 4 Nov. 1860 issue of Bell's Life in London (p.3) gives a game dated 16 Oct. 1860, and the 25 Nov. 1860 issue (p.5) gives one dated 2 Oct. 1860.
