    Excerpt from Under Thirty: An Anthology Several times within the last few weeks people have asked me: But why thirty? Why not twenty-five? they say, reminding me that there is a literary precedent for selecting that age; or three-score years and ten? for which a literary precedent (though not, even with the help of Messrs. Heinemann, quite so important a precedent) exists. And when they asked, I could only shrug my shoulders, unable to answer; nor, indeed, until I had sat down to write this foreword, had I realized that there might well be something more than caprice in the determining the age-limit of my contributors. To-night I stumbled on the truth, remembering that it was in 1935 that the idea of this anthology first came to me. In 1935, when I was twenty-seven. A little personal history: On my seventh birthday I awakened to a sense of expectation, as I had awakened (since consciousness had first supervened) on every previous birthday. But on this, my seventh birthday, although I was to awaken with the old expectancy, I was soon to know the added sense of responsibility. On the little table by my bed was a variety of objects, among which a cap-firing pistol of pressed tinware looms most memorable in my recollection. There was also a picture-postcard, addressed to me, and wishing me 'many happy returns of the day.' About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
