A collection of rhyming couplets, these wry and witty poems ponder the foibles and vanities of mortals. Cartoon pen-and-ink drawings by well-known illustrator Barrington Barber accompany the limerick-like lyrics, which capture the ridiculous—such as absurdly trimmed mustaches and outrageous hairstyles—with humorous rhymes and amusing titles. Perfect for any lover of light verse, these observations are both keen and catchy.

Book Description Shepheard-Walwyn (Publishers) Ltd, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Barrington Barber (illustrator). Language: English. Brand new Book. St Claire Bullock - a Professor of Philosophy, no less - in the intervals between pondering the great questions of life, turned his hand to penning light verse in the manner of Hilaire Belloc, Ogden Nash and Edward Lear. In rhyming couplets these wry and witty poems ponder the foibles and vanities of mortals. Some of these are captured in pen and ink drawings which caricature the subject of the poems. Each character is given an amusing name, beginning with Master Cecil Abercorn, through Clarence Castle, Serena Huff, The Marchioness of Mal de Mer, Major Houghton Reid and Thomas Tinkham Tattersall to Roland Washburn White. There are 70 poems in all of which 10 are illustrated. The illustration on the front cover relates to Rupert Ashe: 'The greatest pride of Rupert Ashe was his luxuriant moustache. He took great care to keep it groomed, And even, with restraint, perfumed. He brushed it upward every day, and it made such a grand display, that people who were not the wiser, imagined that he was the Kaiser.'. Seller Inventory # AAO9780856832666
