Product Description:

One of the world's most loved writers, Edward Lear has delighted whole generations of readers with his verse. As the Time Literary Supplement once said of Lear, he was "a magic song-writer, with something like a reverence for the absurd."

The owls, hen, larks, and their nests in his beard, are among the fey fauna and peculiar persons inhabiting the uniquely inspired nonsense rhymes of Lear (twentieth 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.

Package Weight: about 15.3 ounces.
