Arthur St John Adcock was a novelist, poet and editor of the literary periodical 'The Bookman'. H de Vere Stacpool appears to be here contributing copy for an article in that periodical. Stacpool was one of the highest selling novelists of his generation. He was very prolific but he is probably remembered today only for one - the best selling 'The Blue Lagoon' which was filmed several times and which made him a rich man.
