James Ashcroft Noble
By Kedrun Laurie
James Ashcroft Noble spent most of his working life in the north-west of England and did not move to London until his late thirties. The two papers that he published in The Yellow Book the year before his death, “Mr. Stevenson’s Forerunner” (Vol. IV, January 1895), about the Scottish poet Alexander Smith, and “The Phantasies of Philarete” (Vol. V, April 1895), a tale of New Grub Street, are not of a nature to excite attention or controversy.
