Yesterday I noticed a special book for sale on eBay. It was a copy of Paul Morphy: Sammlung der von ihm gespielten Partien mit ausführlichen Erläuterungen, by Géza Maróczy, published by W. de Gruyter & Co, Berlin and Leipzig, 1908, 436 pages. E. J. Diemer relied on the 1909 edition of this book for a number of his comments on Morphy in his writings. Here's a link to the Maróczy book on eBay (the auction closes on 1 February).
