A few spots on top page ridge, pages toned. 1938 Hard Cover. xiv, 238 pp. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Frederic Ogden Nash (August 19, 1902 - May 19, 1971) was an American poet best known for writing pithy and funny light verse. At the time of his death in 1971, the New York Times said his droll verse with its unconventional rhymes made him the country's best-known producer of humorous poetry. Among his most popular writings were a series of animal verses, many of which featured his off-kilter rhyming devices. Examples include If called by a panther / Don't anther; You can have my jellyfish / I'm not sellyfish; and The Lord in His wisdom made the fly / And then forgot to tell us why. This is his ode to the llama: The one-L lama, he's a priest The two-L llama, he's a beast And I would bet a silk pyjama There isn't any three-L lllama (Nash appended a footnote to this poem: 'The author's attention has been called to a type of conflagration known as a three-alarmer. Pooh.' Nash died of Crohn's disease at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore on May 19, 1971. He is interred in North Hampton, New Hampshire. His daughter Isabel was married to noted photographer Fred Eberstadt, and his granddaughter, Fernanda Eberstadt, is an acclaimed author. -- Wikipedia (Inventory #: 2197867)
