Everymans Library continues to maintain its original commitment to publishing the most significant world literature in editions that reflect a tradition of fine bookmaking. Everymans Library pursues the highest standards, utilizing modern prepress, printing, and binding technologies to produce classically designed books printed on acid-free natural-cream-colored text paper and including Smyth-sewn, signatures, full-cloth cases with two-color case stamping, decorative endpapers, silk ribbon markers, and European-style half-round spines.

Synopsis:

The owls, hen, larks, and their nests in his beard, are among the fey fauna and peculiar persons inhabiting the uniquely inspired nonsense rhymes and drawings of Lear (20th 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.

About the Author

Edward Lear (1812--1888) was an illustrator, natural history artist, and writer, though he is best known for his nonsense poems. His collection of poetry, A BOOK OF NONSENSE, was published in 1846 and helped to popularize the limerick, a humorous form of verse. His most famous poem, THE OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT, has been made into many picture books.
