Vincent O'Sullivan and Oliver Onions are two forgotten writers contemporaries of Powys which Mr Powys admires The further back in time we go the reliable are Mr Powys' judgmentsAt the back of the book is a listing of the titles with 1916 prices Following this are a few reviews of other works by Powys with favorable editorial comment gathered from periodicals across the nationI would probably have never read this book except it was a free download to my Kindle Some of the titles listed by Powys aroused my interest to the point that I downloaded some to my Kindle for future reading
