Evidence

"As a boy George Acorn [an] East Londoner, read ""all sorts and conditions of books from "Penny Bloods" to George Eliot"" with ""some appreciation of style"", enough to recognise the affinities of high and low literature. Thus he discerningly characterised ""Treasure Island"" as ""the usual penny blood sort of story, with the halo of greatness about it""."
