Excerpt from The Jumblies, and Other Nonsense Verses

After many years of publication of the famous Nonsense Songs by Edward Lear which were originally illustrated by the Author himself, it was felt by the publishers that Mr. Lear had, contrary to his usual custom, presented these songs illustrated in the slightest manner only. Mr. L. Leslie Brooke therefore endeavoured to create a further and wider interest in the verses by his own interpretation of them, with many line drawings and colour plates.

The unwonted pleasure the verses have given to thousands of readers will, it is felt, be fully maintained in this further edition with Mr. L. Leslie Brooke's illustrations.

About the Author:

Edward Lear (12 May 1812 – 29 January 1888) was an English artist, illustrator, author and poet, and is known now mostly for his literary nonsense in poetry and prose and especially his limericks, a form he popularised. His principal areas of work as an artist were threefold: as a draughtsman employed to illustrate birds and animals; making coloured drawings during his journeys, which he reworked later, sometimes as plates for his travel books; as a (minor) illustrator of Alfred Tennyson's poems. As an author, he is known principally for his popular nonsense works, which use real and invented English words.
