The Village Explainer
We met Ezra Pound at Grace Lounsbery’s house, he came to dinner with us and he stayed and he talked about japanese prints among other things. Gertrude Stein liked him but did not find him amusing. She said he was a village explainer, excellent if you were a village, but if you were not, not.

The Mapback Index - a Guide for Collectors and Fans - Welcome
This website is devoted to paperbacks published by Dell in the 1940s and 1950s. They were published on inexpensive "pulp" paper, and had striking cover art by some iconic cover artists of the era.
