Evidence

"[Edwin] Whitlock... borrowed books from a schoolmaster and from neighbours: ""Most of them would now be considered very heavy literature for a boy of fourteen or fifteen, but I didn"t know that, for I had no light literature for comparison. I read most of the novels of Dickens, Scott, Lytton and Mrs Henry Wood, "The Pilgrim"s Progress" and "The Holy War" - an illustrated guide to Biblical Palestine, "Uncle Tom"s Cabin", several bound volumes of religious magazines, "The Adventures of a Penny", and sundry similar classics"". With few books competing for his attention, he could freely concentrate on his favorite reading, ""A set of twelve thick volumes of Cassell"s "History of England"""."
