"[In Lark Rise to Candleford (1947)] Flora Thompson recollected young Willie, whose family were village carpenters, being fond of reading, including poetry: 'somehow he had got posession of an old shattered copy of an anthology called A Thousand and One Gems', which he read aloud with her, sitting under nut trees at the bottom of the garden, in the 1890s."
