Biographical data
Name: Jacob, Friedrich G.  
   Also known as: Jakob
Born:

Notes:
Di Felice gives his name as 'Jacob, Franz'. Forster gives 'Jacob, Fr[iedrich] G.'. Winter says the tournament book has 'Fr. G. Jacob aus Straßburg i. E.'. Winter also quotes La Stratégie of 15 Aug. 1900 (p.243) to say 'M. Jacob, pseudonyme d'un amateur de Strasbourg'. The Field in 1907 has first name 'Friedrich' (information from Tim Harding). The Ostende 1907 tournament book edited by Teichmann, lists 'Friedr. Jacob' on p.1 of the Foreword (information from Paul Brown; see also Harding's biography of Blackburne, p.458).
