LOTS OF LIMERICKS illustrations by R. Taylor


LOTS OF LIMERICKS is a handy little hardcover (with a well-loved, slightly soiled dustjacket) full of limericks that are edited by Louis Untermeyer. There's a lot of illustrations by R. Taylor. The illustrations and text are copyright 1961 by the artist and author. It was published that year by Doubleday.

Of course most of the limericks here are ancient groaners. But the art by R. Taylor is wonderful. Here's a sampling of both.
