12 p.; 24 cm. "What follows was written as a memorial Minute on the life and services of Samuel Eliot Morison, for presentation to the Faculty of Arts and Acisnces of Harvard University. Such memorial Minutes are expected to be brief-- 1000 words, more or less. But when I attempted to sketch Morison's career and his services to his alma mater, I found it impossible to confine myself to that limit. The Minute that was eventually submitted was longer than it should have been, but it was still much reduced from what I originally wrote, and it is that full version that appears below."

Bennett, Arnold, 1867-1931.  
The Journal of Arnold Bennett.

Publisher: Garden City [1933].
"Speaking generally, it could be said that the first third of the Journals (1896-1910) shows Arnold Bennett interested in his own mind and its development, in study and the acquisition of all sorts of knowledge. People in this period interest him in relation to their impact on himself more than later on, although his imagination forces him always to see them from their own point of view. In the ten middle years (1911-1920) the effect of success upon him is revealed and a more and more objective observation of the world and of people shown. The last part (1921-1928) records his more personal and social life, his interest in the next generation." viii, [1], 1073 p., index, portrait front., 22 cm.; green cloth boards stamped in gold; spine darkened, no dj; bookplate of Walter B.

Publisher: Morrow, NY [1991]. 'First Edition'.
303 p., index, plates. "In the 1820s Mary Shelley, the celebrated author of Frankenstein, had among her many acquaintances two intriguing friends. One, the author David Lyndsay, had published admired books, poems, and short stories and gained a reputation for himself among the British literary public. The other, Walter Sholto Douglas, husband of Mary Shelley's dear friend Isabella Robinson Douglas, was an aspiring diplomat. ...In 1830 traces of both men suddenly and completely disappeared from Mary Shelley's life, but not from historical evidence... Through years of investigation Bennett uncovered the improbable truth: David Lyndsay and Walter Sholto Douglas were the same person, and, despite historical and legal evidence to the contrary, that person was a woman."

At times, indeed, Pound by his own admission and the reader's testimony fails to equal the achievement of his great precursors.
