How a Single Source Can Change the World

NCE upon a time, an Italian guy found a treasure in a used book shop. And yes, I’m speaking of myself. In Nashville, TN, I found a copy of a first edition G.K. Chesterton book that had a newspaper clipping from “The Tennessean” from 1921 which described how the British author was speaking at the Orpheum Theater that week.
