The Jane Austen was a re-read. Everything down to Rubin and, past that, including Mrs. Gaskell, was bought in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. The Austin AIA book probably came from Congress Avenue Books when the store was in the Stephen F. Austin Hotel building; it could have come from Garner & Smith or Grok, but I do believe it was Congress. Waugh, Fanny Kemble, and Harold Nicolson were all from the Austin Public Library, and I bet they've been de-accessioned. Rubin was sold to Half Price Books. I have a feeling that the place where the study was conducted was known to me at the time, but I can't now remember.
