This is a catch-up! Works covered in this issue are:

Two Middle-aged Ladies in Andalucia by Penelope Chetwode
My Rock Garden; Among the Hills; The Dolomites: King Laurin’s Garden; On the Eaves of the World; The English Rock Garden; The Rainbow Bridge by Reginald Farrer
A Taste of Paris, in Food and Pictures by Theodora FitzGibbon
The Family from One End Street by Eve Garnett
No Voice from the Hall: Early Memories of a Country House Snooper by John Harris
The Water Babies by Charles Kingsley
Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay
Bartleby, the Scrivener by Herman Melville
The Sea, The Sea by Iris Murdoch
The Merchant of Prato by Iris Origo
The Empress of Ireland by Christopher Robbins
Coastwise Lights by Alan Ross
A Cornish Childhood by A. L. Rowse
Sweet Thursday; Cannery Row by John Steinbeck
The Island of Doctor Moreau by H. G. Wells
England Have My Bones by T. H. White.

As most would have guessed, Cannery Row had most LT copies (8303) followed, quite a long way behind, by The Island of Doctor Moreau. There is a group with 1500 - 3000 copies - the other Steinbeck, Iris Murdoch, Melville, Kingsley and Lindsay. The Merchant of Prato and The Family from One End Street have 300-odd copies. The rest only manage below 100, with none in single figures.
