GEORGE GISSING By Philip Armato We published an annotated bibliography of writings about Glssing In EFT, I: 1 (I967), 24-28; supplements In III: 2 (i960), 3-33; VII: I (1964), 14-26, VII: 2 (1964), 73-92; and additional items in various numbers since then, and Pierre Coustillas' primary bibliography of Gissing's short stories in VII: 2 (1964), 59-72. Philip Armato will continue to abstract items appearing currently. We are grateful to Pierre Coustillas for his contributions to the present listing.

Pierre Coustillas Is editor and translator of a bilingual edition of Les Carnets d'Henry Ryecroft (Paris: Aubler-Montalgne, 1966). Arthur C. Young (Rutgers) Is preparing an edition of the collected correspondence of Gissing and requests information fGlsslng Newsletter, II (Dec 1966), 4], Badolato, Francesco. "George Glssing and Calabria," Glssing Newsletter, III (Apr I967), 5-7. GG traveled to Calabria because he was interested in its classical past. "GG emerges, during his journey, not only as a classicist, but also a man full of sensitivity, a human being who knew the needs of the poor people" of Calabria. Coustillas, Pierre. "Comptes Rendus," Etudes Anglaises, XX, (Apr-June I967), I98-99. Rev of Oswald H.

Davis belongs to the group of critics who place GG's fiction above his other writings. Davis' originality lies in his rehabilitation of some minor novels like Denzll Quarr1er, The Town Traveller, and Isabel Clarendon. The book,"welcome as It is, should have been published when Davis was thirty; it would then have been an appropriate reply to Roberts' and Swinnerton's painful deprecations. [Coustillas] .....

In the two-page introd to the article the text is given of a prospectus describing Llndow Grove School, where GG stayed as a pupil In I87I-I872. After the school was transferred to The Dingle, Colwyn Bay, GG promised his headmaster to write his reminiscences of "The Old School." It describes nostalgically his life there, but it omits GG's hatred of military exercises which was to be vehemently expressed in The Private Pajoers £f Henrjr Ryecroft (Spring XIX).
