From Ernest Rhys, Wales England Wed: An Autobiography (London: J. M. Dent, 1940) p. 85. Ernest Rhys (1859–1946), who was to be the founding editor of the J. M. Dent Everyman’s Library series, was at this time a freelance critic and poet in London. Arthur H. Mackmurdo (1851–1942), architect, had in 1882 founded the Century Guild, which for several years published a lavish quarto miscellany called The Hobby Horse. Mackmurdo shared chambers in Fitzroy Street with Herbert P. Horne (1865–1916), who edited the miscellany and was a friend and neighbour of Rhys in Chelsea. The evening Rhys recalls probably belongs to 1887 (the Shaws had been at 29 Fitzroy Square since 5 March).
