1905 The Book of Nonsense
What Our Customers Say...
Collated complete from copac. Profusely illustrated by Lear throughout. Edward Lear was an English artist, illustrator, author and poet, known for popularising the genre of literary nonsense. Lear wrote and illustrated a wide range of poems, songs and short stories, many of which conform to his nonsense style that gained him notoriety. Alongside this work, he undertook a small number of illustrations for Tennyson, alongside composing twelve musical settings for his poetical works. This work encapsulates his humour and nonsensical style through a series of charming limericks and their accompanying illustrations.

Pages are generally bright and clean with some marginal age toning and the odd spot, heavier to the first and last few pages.
