Event table notes

Event data
Place: London
Start date: 12 Dec. 1870
End date: 14 Jan. 1871
 
Notes:
Sunnucks gives date as 1870; Feenstra Kuiper, Golombek, and Hooper and Whyld give 1871; La Grande Storia degli Scacchi gives 1870-1871; Sergeant gives Dec. 1870 - mid-Jan. 1871; Di Felice gives 10 Dec. 1870 to 21 Jan. 1871. The Illustrated London News of 17 Dec. 1870 says the match began 'Monday last', so presumably 12 Dec. 1870 and the location is given as London. The final result (+3-2=4 for Rosenthal) is given in the 21 Jan. 1871 issue and again in the 4 Feb. 1871 issue, and the end date is given in both places as 14 Jan. 1871.
