CL recommended authors in Return to Tradition

I just noticed that some authors on the CL book lists can be found in Francis Beauchesne Thornton's anthology Return to Tradition (RTT, 1948; I got a recent reprint for $35).

The anthology has excerpts of some of the works listed. It also has other works and excerpts by the authors, which is helpful to me in getting a fuller context on each author.

I've compiled a list of authors on these lists:
Book of the Month (BOM); Books of the Christian Spirit (BOCS); Other Recommended Readings (NA); work by author is not on the lists (Other).
