The History of Mr Polly by H. G. Wells (593)

So, none unknown to LT with two real rarities. There is one copy of the Moscow guidebook but the date is unspecified. The diaries of Robert Proctor, a librarian at the British Museum who disappeared while climbing in the Alps, have only been published in a limited edition - three are on LT. Unsurprisingly Camus' The Plague is the most popular work with Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain a rather distant second. Du Maurier and Dinesen are in the next division, managing four figures. Trollope's popularity falls off markedly after the Barchester and Palliser series and I would have expected more interest in Mr. Polly, but then I am rather old-fashioned.
