The Nonsense Verse of Edward Lear, Hardback

The Nonsense Verse of Edward Lear Hardback

Illustrated by John Vernon Lord


Welcome to the world of Edward Lear! Wonderfully reissued in 2012 to celebrate the bicentenary of Edward Lear, this exquisitely-illustrated hardback is a classic in the making.

John Vernon's Lord's stunning illustrations completely capture the spirit and satirical wit of Lear's work, conveying a lifelong enthusiasm for Lear's nonsense. 'Nonsense is the breath of my nostrils', wrote Edward Lear (1812-88).

This is the perfect gift for both Lear fans and those discovering his work for the first time.
