Excerpt from The Book of Nonsense, to Which Is Added More Nonsense: With All the Original Pictures and Verses

In offering this little Book to the Public, I am glad to take the opportunity of recording the pleasure I have received at the appreciation its predecessor has met with, as attested by its wide circulation, and by the universally kind notices of It from the Press. To have been the means of administering innocent mirth to thousands, may surely be a just motive for satisfaction, and an excuse for grateful expression.

At the same time, I am desirous of adding a few words as to the history of the previously published volume - viz., the first or original "Book of Nonsense," relating to which many absurd reports have crept into circulation, such as that it was the composition of the late Lord Brougham, the late Earl of Derby, etc.; that the Rhymes and Pictures are by different persons; or that the whole have a symbolical meaning, etc., etc.; whereas, every one of the Rhymes was composed by myself, and every one of the Illustrations drawn by my own hand at the time the verses were made.
