As a matter of biographical interest, I wonder if anyone has knowledge 
or views on the following:

1) As far as I have been aware, Durrell escaped from Greece in 1941 
with little or nothing; I am not aware that he brought any notebooks 
with him to Egypt nor a copy of Atkinson.

2) Durrell wrote Prospero's Cell in Alexandria.

3) Either point 1 is wrong and Durrell did somehow bring some things to 
Egypt, or Durrell was able to obtain a copy of Atkinson in Egypt.

What do you know or think?
