There is also an article about life at Faber and Faber by Jane Feaver.

In LT, Kipling's Kim wins by a short head with nearly 6000 copies. Just behind is the first of Alan Bradley's Flavia de Luce stories - The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie - with the rest of his books adding up to around another 9000 copies. These are new to me and must be worth exploring.

Zeno's Conscience shows over 2400 copies and Gissing and Huxley both manage to beat 1000. The remainder have counts in the hundreds except for the rarities - Cuthbert Bede's Verdant Green novels - 68 of the first and single figures for the rest.
