Mervyn Peake's Book of Nonsense
A Book of Nonsense
London: Peter Owen, 1972.
The unpublished occasional verse and nonsense writings of Mervyn Peake have been collected here by his widow, Maeve Gilmore.
From 'The Dwarf of Battersea' to the unfinished 'Adventures of Footfruit', these pieces range over 30 years and are reminiscent of his wilder drawings, many of which illustrate the text.
Small hardcover, with jacket, in excellent condition. 88 pages.
