Most widely held works by George Smith
The Dictionary of national biography, 1961-1970 : with an index covering the years 1901-1970 in one alphabetical series by George Smith( Book )

335 editions published between 1885 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 3,749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new volume of the DNB records the lives of 1,086 men and women who for a variety of reasons were omitted from the original version. This volume is intended as a "catch-up" volume, adding a substantial number of individuals to the record of British history. The choice of entrants is of special interest since it not only rectifies some earlier oversights but also reflects scholarly developments in British history as well as more general changes in social outlook over the period since first publication. Thus, for example there are proportionately nearly four times as many women in this volume as in the original DNB, while a richer concentration of representatives from the developing worlds of commerce and finance, industry and science from the sixteenth to the mid-nineteenth centuries points to areas of relatively recent attention by historians of the period. Similarly, the selection of some religious radicals of the seventeenth century singles out individuals whose significance has now been uncovered by modern scholarship. Among those no longer missing are: Thomas Traherne, Sylvia Plath, Francis Kilvert, Joe Ackerley, Lillie Langtry, and J.C. Merrick (The Elephant Man)

Quoting from a letter he received from Vicomte de Noé who said he translated an article which he sent to the magazine and since he hasn't heard anything back he is assuming it was accepted and would like payment; wondering if anyone at the Cornhill knows anything about it as he does not remember it; saying he had "the note in my pocket & came into the City with it to day: but was in such a state of (bladder) irritation that I came back again. If you have paid it: it will be to great fun. He is the brother of the caricaturist Cham but I never to my knowledge set eyes on him."
