William Hyde wrote (11 Oct 2005 13:11:14 -0400):

Keene and Coles' "Staunton" is worthwhile if not
at the level of [Keene and Botteril on the Modern,
and Keene's "Flank Openings"]. There appears
to be a followup by Keene and another author on
"Staunton's London", but I've no idea if that is any
god.

Staunton's City Chess in London, Simpson's and
The Savoy by Keene and Martin is a different kind
of book. On the back cover:
_
"This book gives all the games [of The Second
Staunton Memorial Tournament] and a potted
history of chess in London. The greatest London
events are recorded as well as games played
in London by every World Champion."
_
I could find only seven Staunton games in the book.
