'Sam Loyd and his Chess Problems' ist sich bei der Quelle nicht sicher und gibt an: "Elizabeth Herald, c. 1890?", 'Der Schachzug' gibt an: "'Chess Magazine', 1878". Die 'Philadelphia Times' schreibt: "The following problem by Mr. Samuel Loyd, originally published in the New York 'Evening Telegram' and reprinted in the 'International' ..."

'New York Evening Telegram' (Leiter der Schachrubrik "Castles and Kings": Sam Loyd):
Composers not infrequently get the idea of the trick for a problem by first placing the black king on the board alone and adding the other pieces one at a time as the problem becomes developed during the course of construction. Sometimes the relative positions of the kings will suggest a good theme to build upon. During a recent visit to the New York Chess Club our chess editor was invited to compose an impromptu position for the members to solve, and the placing of the two kings in opposite corners of the board - as shown on the diagram - was given as a theme to work upon. The position of the pieces illustrates the group of solvers in one corner, and the author in another awaiting the arrival of the solution, which, by the way, he will add, wass not so spontaneous as the composing. It is a crude affair, but is thought to give evidence of latent genius which may yet come to the surface. While referring to the placing of the kings, we give our readers another little puzzle in the same line [s. P1364636], which they will find both amusing and instructive ..."

'DAZ'-Lösungsanalyse: "Den starken Drohungen des Schw. (Dxe8, Tb3-a3,h2-h1=D) kann Wß. nur durch starke Mattdrohungen begegnen. Als solche ergibt sich 1. Sd4-f5, was 2. Da1-h1+ und 2. Da1-a6 (--c6 oder b7) droht. Die stärkste Erwiderung ist natürlich Dh8xa1, worauf Sd7-f6 matt folgen könnte, wenn die D von der Deckung des Feldes f6 abgesperrt werden könnte. Das erreicht aber Wß. durch 2. c2-c4+, worauf Schw. b4xc3ep spielen muß und Sd7-f6 matt setzt. Nun hat Schw. gegen 2. Dh1+ auch die Verteidigung La7-g1, was auch die Fortsetzung 2. Da1-a6 (wegen Dh8-a1) ausschließt. Dann schließt aber Wß. durch 2. e2-e4+ f4xe3ep die L-Schräge und Sd7 gibt auf b6 matt. Nicht minder fesselnd gestaltet sich das Spiel, wenn Bd3 von einem T geschlagen wird: 1. ... Tb3xd3 2. c2-c4+ b4xc3ep 3. Da1-a2 matt und 1. ... Th3-d3 2. e2-e4+ f4xe3ep 3. Da1-h1 matt. In diesem Fall wird durch das erzwungene Kreuzen ['DAZ'-Sprechweise für "en passant-Schlagen"] der betr. T verhindert, zwischenzusetzen. Die Aufgabe, die also mittels des Kreuzens einmal die Sperrung zweier Schrägen, das anderemal die Sperrung einer seitlichen Turmreihe durchsetzt, ist ein Meisterwerk ersten Ranges."
'DAZ' gibt als Quelle "1. Preis Strategie-Turnier 1908" an.

Zitat aus der WHZ: 'Der Verfasser dieser zierlichen Aufgabe ist, wie das "Rigaer Tageblatt" mitteilt, ein 13jähriger Knabe'.

KAL Kubbel wurde am 25.12.1891 geboren, was auf ein falsches 'Knabenalter' oder auf ein falsches Jahr beim Rigaer Tageblatt hindeutet.
Mario Richter: ????????? ?????? ?.?.??????? (Moskau, 1958; S.44, Problem Nr.101) nennt auch 1905 als Publikationsdatum.
(Btw., bei russichen Datumsangaben aus der Zarenzeit ist wegen des anderen Kalenders immer ein bißchen Vorsicht angesagt, gerade bei Daten rund um den Jahreswechsel.) (2011-11-26)
Mario Richter: Trotz "charset=utf-8" erscheinen jetzt wieder "???...". Deshalb nochmal die Sekundärquelle in transkription: "Isbrannije Sadatschij L.I.Kubbelja" (2011-11-26)
