50 Forgotten Treasures

Has it ever struck you that many of the same titles come up time and time again, on many of these lists? So I asked my friends to suggest books that they think are great, but are now little read. I haven't read all of these, so I can't endorse them all, but I hope they'll give you some new ideas for a good read. (And some of these images were quite hard to find, which shows they have been forgotten. So, I hope you will find treasure here too.)
