Showcasing another quirky side of the author best known for his monumental fantasy trilogy, Gormenghast, this collection contains pieces recently discovered by the Peake family From the macabre to the brilliantly off-beat, Mervyn Peake's nonsense verse can, like marzipan, be enjoyed by young and old alike. This collection of writings and drawings has been selected by his widow, Maeve Gilmore, and it introduces a bewitching gallery of characters and creatures rivalling the best of Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear--creatures such as the Dwarf of Battersea and Footfruit. Also included are never-before-seen illustrations to the poems not in previous editions. This treasure trove will delight new and old fans alike with its deceptively goofy, actually quite complex verse--it's quirky and comical, occasionally alarming, but always magical.

“There was an Old Derry down Derry, Who loved to see little folks merry; So he made them a Book, And with laughter they shook At the fun of that Derry down Derry.” First published in 1846 under the pseudonym “Old Derry down Derry”, A Book of Nonsense is a collection adapted from the limericks and illustrations Edward Lear created to amuse the grandchildren of Lord Stanley, 13th Earl of Derby, while he was staying with the family at Knowsley Hall. Embodying Lear's passion for nonsense, the limericks, each accompanied by one of Lear's beguiling original illustrations, are fun, lyrical, lively and hilarious, and have enchanted children and adults since their first appearance in the middle of the nineteenth century.

Lear's nonsense books were quite popular during his lifetime, but a rumor developed that "Edward Lear" was merely a pseudonym, and the books' true author was the man to whom Lear had dedicated the works, his patron the Earl of Derby. Promoters of this rumor offered as evidence the facts that both men were named Edward, and that "Lear" is an anagram of "Earl."The falls of the Kalama, Albania 1851Lear's nonsense works are distinguished by a facility of verbal invention and a poet's delight in the sounds of words, both real and imaginary. A stuffed rhinoceros becomes a "diaphanous doorscraper." A "blue Boss-Woss" plunges into "a perpendicular, spicular, orbicular, quadrangular, circular depth of soft mud.

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.
