The "sponsor" error remains puzzling to me, and I still like Michael's original note on the error.  Wilhelm Worringer was a German art historian.  *What's Durrell doing with a text (Abstraction and Empathy [c. 1907]) in a language he doesn't read?*  Or does he?

I have verified LD's source for your Bruce.  (/Scholars, like Nature, 
abhor a vacuum/.)  And at least part of the botched Latin is not LD's fault.

On 15v of the BL /Justine /notebook "Notes for Alex" LD is taking notes 
from Jung's /Psychological types, or, The Psychology of individuation/ 
(Baynes trans):

Jung quotes Worringer throughout.

Jung's discussion of the "hortus conclusus" phrase appears on page 285 
of the 1953 reprint of /Psychological types, or, The Psychology of 
individuation.  /I believe the "sponsor" slip up is LD's. 

"We shall have a lot to discuss about that."
