[I am missing at least one other posthumous review, which The Morning Post claims as the last piece Lang ever wrote. The beginning of this review [but not the whole of it] is available as a news clipping in “The Book of Andrew Lang,” ms38746 in the special collections at the University of St Andrews.  In an obituary in Oxford Magazine, George Saintsbury drew attention to the fact that many newspapers published Lang material in late July: Saintsbury wrote that Lang was “a gentleman of the Press for six-and-thirty years till his death, and in fact after it. For more than one newspaper hastened to inform the world that it had posthumous material, which in each case was probably his last composition—a circumstance which, it may be said with perfect certainty, could have amused no one more and disgusted no one less than himself” (The Oxford Magazine, vol. XXXI, No. 1, 17 Oct. 1912, p. 5)]
