When what Toynbee called a “creative minority” does not rise to the occasion of a great challenge, society withers and dies.
Dr. Toynbee finds that since 1802 the Commedia as a whole has been translated into English about once every four years.
"This is part of a little affair I'm managing for Mrs. Toynbee," says Pinckney.
Dr. Toynbee has long promised to publish a paper on this matter.
About the third day things began to hum around the Toynbee place.
The first house of this kind to be established was Toynbee Hall in London, in 1885.
Toynbee Hall is not the only place in East London where (p. 175) such works are carried on.
And it was a time of rising rents; according to Toynbee they at least doubled between 1790 and 1833.
I should very much have preferred the young man from Toynbee Hall who escorted Marion to the cathedral.
He conducted Marion to the door and handed her over to the private secretary from Toynbee Hall.
