In this sequal to his "Lectures to Living Authors" the author covers a myriad of literary subjects, ranging over reviewing, literary agents, actors and acting, poets laureate, novel writing, the Victorian library. Notable names in literature are dotted through Watson's observations, many of them pithy, some critical or cynical and others given in praise. A few of the names mentioned: Joseph Conrad, Marie Corelli and Samuel Butler. Of literary agents, for instance, the author says there are "some dozen or more of repute settled in this city of London. There are many more, no doubt, whose methods will not bear investigation." He wonders. with regret "whither the old slashing school of reviewers have fled." Later "I suppose the old-fashioned brutality was deplorable, but it had its advantages." This is an entertaing and informative look back on writers and writings of the recent past. 192 pages, green hard covers with gilt spine titles VG with light bruising spine extremities, small triangular fade mark spine centre (possibly where price was surgically removed), neat ink name top FFEP, text block otherwise excellent, vertical and lower page edges untrimmed.
