A Scattered Garland: Gleanings from the lives of Webster Booth and Anne Ziegler (Volume 1) is a compilation of newspaper snippets, articles and criticisms, taken from a wide variety of sources, interspersed with my own comments expanding on particular events. It covers the first part of Anne and Webster’s careers from 1902 until 1956 when the couple moved to South Africa. Webster and Anne reached the height of their fame during the war on the Variety Circuit and in several lavish musicals and films. The compilation covers Anne and Webster’s musical and theatrical ventures from Webster’s first professional engagement with D’Oyly Carte in the early nineteen-twenties to mid-1956. Their later lives and careers are covered in Volume 2 of "The Scattered Garland". The book is 300 pages in length and is liberally illustrated.

    Jean Collen has done extensive research on the lives and careers of Webster Booth and Anne Ziegler. Originally "A Scattered Garland" was published in one volume, but recently this book was published in 2 volumes as she had found out so much more about the couple's career, both as soloists and duettists. If you want to know about the lives and careers of this famous couple, I can certainly recommend the two volumes of "A Scattered Garland". The book is liberally illustrated with photographs and newspaper cuttings. I was most interested to read about the career of Webster Booth's second wife, Paddy Prior, who was a gifted performer in her own right, but who is largely forgotten today.
