Editorial Reviews for this title:
This Centennial Special contains references to100 years of publishing activities in the Boston area. The feat was made possible mainly by Mr. Edmund Brown, who in 1909 incorporated his first publishing company, The Four Seas. With the advent of the Depression, he subsequently incorporated Bruce Humphries; finally in the sixties, he incorporated Branden Press, which continues to this day as Branden Books. This volume also contains images of various published works as well as photos of art work published herewith for the first time, inclusive of the images on the front cover Boston Scene by Randolph Brown and The Boy Fishing by Marjorie Very on the back cover. Edmund was married to Alice Very, Chief Editor, and Randolph was his artist father. In his lifetime, M. Brown published more than two thousand authors and musicians as can be seen by the four extensive bibliographies in the book whose main feature is the re-publication of William Faulkner s The Marble Faun as it was first published in 1924.
