Some of the other books can be easily found at antiquarian bookstores: The Elephant and the Kangaroo, Mistress Masham's Repose, The Master and America at Last pose no serious problem. Early editions are more difficult to find; in particular the books published under the pseudonym "James Aston". First editions of Loved Helen and Darkness at Pemberley are quite difficult to locate. The two most elusive White books, without doubt, are The Green Bay Tree (or The Wicked Man Touches Wood) and Dead Mr Nixon.
