History has produced no greater expert in the field of nonsense than Edward Lear, the beloved Victorian poet and illustrator whose books have charmed readers young and old for nearly two centuries now. A Book of Nonsense is the perfect example of Lear at his silliest: an exuberant collection of nonsense limericks peppered with Lear’s fantastic, bizarre, grotesque, and unforgettable illustrations. Reproduced here in a full-color facsimile edition, it reveals Lear’s imagination at its most winning, childlike, and fertile.
