Evidence

?A situation as an errand boy at a bookseller?s was then found for me. A circulating library was attached to the business. My duties were to clean books and knives and brasses, and then carry books and magazines to the houses of the gentry who were subscribers to the library. The occupation was not uncongenial? for I was able to steal a peep at literature which would not otherwise have come within my reach. The book that was then in greatest demand, as I gathered from so often carrying it from one house to another, was Eliot Warburton?s ""Crescent and the Cross"", and next to it, I think, came Tennyson?s poems.?

Notes
From the evidence, it is unclear whether Adams read this book. But as he took the book to so many subscribers as the errand boy of the library, it is probable that he stole a peep at its contents.
