This vintage book contains Edward Lear's 1912 children's book; "The Complete Nonsense Book". The greatest classical author of nonsense, Lear produced a wealth of silly and humorous works that have amused children and adults alike for more than a century. This fantastic little volume of verse and story makes for perfect bedtime reading, and is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Lear's wonderful work. Contents include: "Queery Leary Nonsense", "Mrs. Blue Dickey-Bird", "Drawings for Mother Goose", "Illustrations for The Owl and the Pussy Cat", "Foss", "Ger-woman and Ger-man", "At Dingle Bank", "Spots of Greece", "Epitaph", "The Youthful Cove", "The Book of Nonsense", "There was an Old Man with a Nose", etcetera. Many antiquarian texts such as this, are increasingly hard to come by and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
