|Lovely detailing on the spine.|
|The Bard on the front|
|Marian V. Brown|
When I drove home to Pennsylvania last year, my mother gave me my Great Aunt Marian Brown's Complete Works of Shakespeare. I adore The Bard and this meant (and still means) so much to me. I couldn't find a publication date anywhere in the book. It doesn't look like any pages came out, so I don't know if I'm just over-looking it or if it's just not there.
Marian Veronica Brown was the Theatre/Drama teacher at Hazleton High School. Sadly, I don't know much about her that's fact (and when I say fact, I mean tales that have been verified). She died far too young in my opinion. I wish I had known her. She is so far just stories. Random mentions of a lady that my mom and her siblings know, and I don't. It's one of those things that when you ask to know more not much gets said. I really need to put together a list of questions for my mom and ask her face to face when I visit again in a few months.
There's a pretty good story about Marian having a love affair with a famous author, but I'll have to wait to post on that until I get home and get some details on that story! Until then I can only cherish my Shakespeare tome.
