Notes:
Zavatarelli cites a number of contemporary sources that constrain the match to the month of May 1859. Lawson gives the result 5-5 from the Chess Monthly of July 1859, ignoring the 4 draws. Löwenthal gives the result +5-5=4 in the Era of 5 Jun. 1859 (p.5). Also, Staunton gives one of the games in the Illustrated London News of 2 July 1859 (p.19) and another in the 23 June 1860 issue (p.614).
