Having read so much back and forth discussion about a nearly-invisible 
book, the bibliographer on the list is moved to act.  After all, when 
evidence is heard in court, one prefers to have the specific, concrete, 
locatable evidence.  Let specificty thrive.

Not many people subscribing will have quick access to a copy of 
Atkinson's book.  Only 46 major libraries worldwide catalog /An Artist 
in Corfu/ (1911) in their collections.  I have found a total of 3 copies 
for sale this morning in a quick survey of online catalogs.  Bill is 
correct.  An average price is US $300 / GB £150.  Therefore I attach the 
following image and description for your enjoyment.  A pretty little 
volume from the early twentieth century.

To paraphrase an old folk tune from the left, "Come back, Alan Thomas, 
we need you today."  Surely AGT was one reader who would have known 
precisely what LD had been "up to" in /Prosepero's Cell/?  From his 
letters and the one film appearance I have seen, he seems "quick" in 
that way.
