Edward Lear, Original Colour Reproductions from 1870
Edward Lear's Book of Nonsense
(Littlehampton Book Services Ltd Jan. 1, 1988)
, Reprint Edition
The owls, hen, larks, and their nests in his beard, are among the fey fauna and peculiar persons inhabiting the uniquely inspired nonsense rhymes and drawings of Lear (20th child of a London stockbroker), whose Book of Nonsense, first published in 1846, stands alone as the ultimate and most loved expression in English of freewheeling, benign, and unconstricted merriment.
