HELP! Still Need Answers to Two Chess History Questions

Question 1. There was a world championship chess match played in New York where the games were copyrighted and sold to newspapers, wire services, etc. Was it Lasker – Steinitz 1894? If not, was it Steinitz – Zukertort 1886 or Lasker – Marshall 1907? Please send me details. Answer: Lasker – Steinitz 1894, see comment. (updated 2006-12-10)

Question 2. In which book(s) translated into English, did Botvinnik say he told the USSR Chess Federation “The next world champion should be a Soviet, like me, and not an Estonian like Paul Keres.”?
