About this Item

Inscribed & signed (author's full name) to the FFE. Thorne was "Mrs. S.C. Thorne" of Brownwood, Texas; served as editor of the weekly "prism" while at Howard Payne College there, probably between 1915 and 1918, and was also known for her illustrations. She was apparently born 2 March 1895 in Bell County, Texas, and died 26 June, 1947, in San Angelo. She thanks for permission to reprint her verse here a number of periodicals including the New York Sun, San Francisco Examiner, Kansas City Journal Star, The Bard, etc. More than that we've been unable to learn. Small book of amusing verse bound in attractive, crystal-patterned cloth. (PLEASE NOTE: The word "inscribed" means the author has written words in addition to her name in this book -- often a salutation to the original buyer or recipient. If you are not familiar with the meaning of the term "inscribed," we strongly recommend a careful examination of the scans -- photos -- which accompany this listing.) 64 pp. Reduced from $45.
