BOGEY BEASTS is a rare volume indeed, often reproduced but virtually never seen in its original stateā€”I have seen one other copy and that was at the SIME MUSEUM in GUILDFORD. This mythical carnival-of-the-animals is often lauded as some of the artist's finest and most whimsical creations, comprised of fifteen ipen & ink drawings, llustrating the fifteen p"Jabberwocky-like" poems by Sime. A children's book really, with the poetry put to art and the piano music of Joseph Holbrooke. Not, it is not easy playing! Being a children's book, copies in decent shape are beyond rare. Issued w/o d.j. A very good copy, issued w/o d.j., with traces of foxing. For what it is it is an exceptional copy.
