Extract from the Nonsense Gazette, for August, 1870.

 

“Our readers will be interested in the following communications from our valued and learned contributor, Professor Bosh, whose labours in the fields of Culinary and Botanical science, are so well known to all the world. The first three Articles richly merit to be added to the Domestic cookery of every family; those which follow, claim the attention of all Botanists, and we are happy to be able through Dr. Bosh’s kindness to present our readers with illustrations of his discoveries. All the new flowers are found in the valley of Verrikwier, near the lake of Oddgrow, and on the summit of the hill Orfeltugg.”

 

Edward Lear (1812 – 1888) English artist, illustrator, musician, author and poet, famous mostly for his literary nonsense poetry and prose, especially his limericks.
