FIFTY FOUR CONCEITS

M. ARMSTRONG & E. RAVILIOUS    Book Number: 86406    Product format: Hardback

Originally published in 1933, this is a charming book of verse with skilful and beautiful wood engravings from the artistic hands of Eric Ravilious. It is a collection of epigrams and epitaphs both serious and comic - a young airman, a suicide, an old gaffer, a drowned sailor, a chemist, a boaster, a misanthrope, an athlete, a crew lost at sea, a snuff-taker, a highwayman, the driver of a mail-van, a wine lover, the disappointed glutton, mushrooms and more. A Bad Novelist: 'There is a book for every need so apt that he who runs may read, but from the volumes I have spun whoever tries to read will run.' The Self-Lover: 'Now we've agreed to disagree it is not you I miss, but me: upon my-self-in-love to brood I loved, and you supplied the mood.' 70pp.
