Thanks so much for your question. I found the following reviews (two
of which pafalafa-ga also mentioned above). Again, you'll need to go
to a library or use a library's databases to retrieve these items.
However, all of these are mainstream publications, so you shouldn't
have too much trouble locating the reviews. A few of these (a very
few) can be accessed for a fee online. If that was the case, I have
provided the link to the review itself or to the archive search

As for my handle, yes, it is a reference to the E.F. Benson Mapp &
