There's a Logan Pearsall Smith cult -- and this is tops. One can forgive him his little snobberies, for he is the last perfectionist. Reminiscences aboard Edith Wharton's yacht, of a boyhood in Philadelphia, a first trip abroad, Haverford College, then Harvard, youthful associates, a year in Germany, a few months at home in his father's business, then the determination to live abroad and write. Manuscript hunting, Oxford, Paris of Whistler, Bridges, Henry James, ten years in Sussex. Sage and entertaining literary chit-chat, delightfully done.
