Auction for 3 books:

** Rome wasn't burned in a day - the mischief of language
Leo Rosten

When you need a laugh... if you love language..... this delightful quick read full of maloprops, typos and wrong word usage is so much fun. I was laughing out loud with every page. It's just fun. And, if you wish, you can discover the source of many a sentence.

** People One Ought to Know
Christopher Isherwood

A collection of eighteen illustrated poems about a variety of animals with some particularly human characteristics. The first book Christopher Isherwood ever wrote, a collection of nonsense verses about animals, in the tradition of Edward Lear. It was done in collaboration with a child he was tutoring.

** The Further Blurtings of Baxter

Another collection of bizarre artworks from the illustrator of "The Collected Blurtings of Baxter". This time the collection is prefaced with a short story, "Erina Tries to Be Popular", which, not surprisingly, has no connection whatever with the artworks which follow it.
