Richard Burton allegedly acquired an entire set of Everyman's Library
books for Liz Taylor when they wed. I actually saw one of the books for
sale on ABE or some similar site: it was rebound in cheezy red leather.
As the ML had just under 400 titles, and the EL nearing 1000, I am
assuming Mrs. Burton was more intellectually deficient than Mrs. Miller.
