As its subject was not quite fifty then and at the height of his creative power, the book naturally lacked the air of finality that one usually associates with studies of this kind.

But even apart from the in evitable limitation imposed by the time of writing Bohun Lynchs book leaves much to be desired. It is an informal, sympathetic and well-written appreciation of certain selected aspects ofBeerbohms art, rather than a careful and systematic analysis of all the then available facts. This is especially evident from the authors virtual neglect of such topics as Beerbohms literary ancestry, his technique, and his place as a critic, and from the scant treatment accorded to his personality and to some of his works.

Bibliographical documentation about the writings and caricatures of Sir Max Beerbohm is equally inadequate. The first important contribution in this field was made by A. E. Gallatin, whose Sir Max Beerbohm: Bibliographical Notes appeared in 1944. A revised version of part of this book, by A. E. Gallatin and L. M. Oliver, was serialized in the Harvard Library Bulletin in 1951, and published in 1952 as No.
