Excerpt from Granite and Rainbow Essays

Umes of collected essays: The Common Reader, First and Second Series. After her death I took steps to gather together her essays which had not been included in those volumes. There were a considerable number of them; most of them had been published in journals, but a few had never been published. They proved sufficient to fill three posthumous volumes: The Death of the Moth, 1942; The Moment, 1947, and The Captain's Death Bed, 1950. I included in those volumes only those essays which seemed to me of the same order of excellence as those which she herself had chosen to reprint in The Common Reader. When I published The Cap tain's Death Bed, I thought that I had been able to identify all the essays which had appeared in journals and I wrote in the Editorial Note to that volume that it would be the last book of collected essays, since I had now included in the posthumous volumes all her essays, with a few unimportant exceptions.
