Frances Burney Changes Hands

250px-Frances_d'Arblay_('Fanny_Burney')_by_Edward_Francisco_Burney.jpgSome of you may recall Maureen E. Mulvihill’s essay on the auction of the Peyraud Collection just about this time last year (“Literary Property Changing Hands”). Fanny Burney was one of the stars of that collection, and Dr. Mulvihill has again taken up her pen to give us a detailed account of the special Burney items that ‘changed hands’ at that Bloomsbury sale in May of 2009. Her essay “Bedazzled by Burney,” commissioned by The Burney Letter, can be downloaded in full at the Burney Centre website
