"'The Jumblies' and 'The Owl and the Pussy-cat', as well as Edward Lear's many limericks, are widely loved and have enchanted generations of children and adults. Primarily a landscape painter and skilled ornithological illustrator, Lear found popular success through his collections of nonsense written originally for friends and their children, but the full range of his extraordinary talent is less well known." "This volume, which contains material previously unpublished, presents all Lear's verse together with his other nonsense writing, including his stories, letters to children and several of his illustrated alphabets. For all the apparent simplicity of his work, Lear was a complex character, as Vivien Noakes's illuminating Introduction and extensive annotation make clear." "Illustrated throughout, this is the definitive edition of Lear's wonderfully whimsical, timeless nonsense."--Jacket
