The Complete Verse and Other Nonsense by Edward Lear
The first complete edition of Edward Lear's verse and other nonsense writings since 1947. This is also the first annotated edition, from the juvenilia to the great nonsense books. Lear's verses, limericks and fantastical line-drawings have enchanted children and adults alike through the generations. The Owl and the Pussycat, The Jumblies and The Dong with a Luminous Nose are as appealing today as they ever were and Lear is held in great affection by many who grew up with these childhood classics. Illustrated throughout, this handsome edition includes Lear's nonsense prose, both short stories and private letters. The definitive edition of Lear's wonderfully whimsical, timeless nonsense.
