From the benighted Old Man with a Beard to the erudite Perpendicular Purple Polly, Edward Lears world is inhabited by a bewildering variety of oddities. Pelicans and parrots, seals and rhinoceroses cavort gaily with Dongs and Pobbles, not to mention the Quangle-Wangles! Edward Lear is one of the worlds most-loved writers, and his verse has delighted whole generations of readers. Here, after 140 years, is the original edition of A Book of Nonsense, from the original publishers. It is both an object to be treasured and a feast of playfulness that will delight every reader. Complete with Lears own remarkable illustrations, by turns surreal, hilarious and simply nonsensical, this treasure trove of nonsense is guaranteed to hold readers spellbound for generations more!
A collection of over 100 limericks with the authors original illustrations.
