Notes:
Feenstra Kuiper and Di Felice say this is the total score of 3 matches (+12-2=8 for Neumann). La Grande Storia degli Scacchi gives a result of +3-1=1 for Neumann; presumably this was just one of the three matches. The Chess Players' Quarterly Chronicle of Apr. 1869 (vol.1, p.188) gives a result of +4-1=3, presumably another of the three matches. The Round Table of 22 May 1869 (p.333) gives a result of +4-1=1 for Neumann. The Illustrated London News of 1 May 1869 (p.451) gives 2 games from the match; the 3 July 1869 issue (p.23) gives another game 'in their late match'. The Round Table of 13 Feb. 1869 (p.109) reports from the London Weekly Dispatch that the match had started, so it must have started somewhat earlier than this. The Era of 28 Feb. 1869 (p.4) gives a current score of the second match as +1-1=1, as does the New York Clipper of 27 Mar. 1869. The Era of 25 Apr. 1869 (p.7) says that the second match had finished.
