A BOOK OF NONSENSE. By Edward Lear, Third edition. With many new pictures and verses. London.
London: Routledge, Warne, and Routledge, [1862.]. [ii], 113 leaves printed on one side only. Original pictorial paper-covered boards, sometime re-backed in imitation of the original. A few leaves have some slight damage to the fore-edges where once loose; one leaf repaired; one leaf with juvenile scribble on blank verso; binding very worn to corners and edges, and both boards with old fold marks, now repaired. However, this third printing, the first with woodcut illustrations based on the earlier  lithographs, and the first enlarged edition with 43 new rhymes and illustrations, is extremely rare; in our experience, much more so than the second edition of 1855. -
