Event data
Place: London
Start date: 2 Nov. 1875
End date: 7 Dec. 1875
 
Notes:
Hooper and Whyld (1st edition) give date as 1875 on p.263, but 1872 on p.387, corrected to 1875 in the 2nd edition, p.459; Feenstra Kuiper, Golombek, Diggle (quoted at Chess Notes) and La Grande Storia degli Scacchi give 1875; Di Felice gives 2 Nov. - 7 Dec. 1875; Harding gives start date 2 Nov. 1875. The Illustrated London News of 6 Nov. 1875 says it started 'Tuesday last', so 2 Nov., and the issue of 11 Dec. 1875 says it concluded 'Tuesday last', so 7 Dec. 1875. Harding gives an end date of 9 Dec. 1875. The result is given there as 5-3.5 for Zukertort, an error for 5.5-3.5, because according to the rules the first 5 draws did not count, so +4-2=8 counted as +4-2=3.
