Scope and Contents

"Dear Madam, I see with interest that you are about to write a biography of 'E. Nesbit', surely the most charming author of books for children? I'm afraid I have no material for you, as I never met her personally, but I can still remeber the thrills of a new E. Nesbit book at Christmas - they are all there now, waiting in a trunk in the attic, until my own small children are big enough to appreciate them..."
