LEAR'S NONSENSE BOOKS

Mr. RusxIN says:-' Surely the most beneficent and innocent of all
books yet produced is the "Book of Nonsense," with its corollary
carols, inimitable and refreshing, and perfect in rhythm. I really don't
know any author to whom I am half so grateful for my idle self as
Edward Lear. 1 shall put him first of my hundred authors.'

THE BOOK OF NONSENSE. Twenty-eighth Edi.
tion, re-issued in its original form. With 110 Droll Illustrations,
printed in Black and White, with full Letterpress Descriptions. In
oblong 4to. cloth gilt, 6s.

MORE NONSENSE. Third Edition. 104 pages of
Droll Illustrations with full Letterpress Descriptions and an Original
Preface. In oblong 4to, cloth gilt, 6s.

NONSENSE SONGS AND STORIES. Sixth
Edition. With all the Original Illustrations, and a Preface hitherto
unpublished. In large fcap. 4to. 3s. 6d.

NONSENSE BOTANY AND NONSENSE
ALPHABETS. Fifth Edition. With 162 Illustrations. In
large fcap. 4to. gilt, 3s. 6d.

'Mr. Lear was almost original and diverting humourist. His various
nonsense verses and stories are an unwearying joy, and his designs for
them are exactly right. To think of them is to giggle happily or even
hysterically, whether his theme be the adventures of Slingsby and
Violet or the amours of the Pussy-Cat who was as long in getting
married and as punctilious as Medea in Apollonius Rhodius.'-S-LTB~ DA
RsvxIE, May 31, 1890.
