Gilbert Keith Chesterton, 1874 - 1936

This was probably published after 1987, the year of the History of the QTP, as Chesterton is not listed there. But if Chesterton died in 1936 then the copyright of his work ended in 1986, so it might have been published then or in 1987, and Carr perhaps forgot to list it in his History? Gilbert Keith Chesterton was an English writer, dramatist, theologian, radio broadcaster and poet.
