    Synopsis: "When Mary Webb died, in 1927, few people outside her own immediate circle had read her books. The following year, in the great outburts of publicity attendant upon Mr Baldwin's speech at the Royal Literary Fund dinner, and his preface to Precious Bane, the position was reversed. Mary Webb had become a celebrity almost overnight, and her native county of Shropshire - temporarily, at least - basked in reflected glory."
