Bold, bawdy, and illustrated candidly, Some Limericks has the dubious distinction of being one of the most frequently pirated books of all time. Since its first appearance in 1928, it is considered the most obscene & savory limericks ever penned, accompanied by illuminating commentaries and a “Geographical Index”. The author’s erudition effortlessly traverses topics as diverse as the mudflats of Leigh-on-Sea, the dahlias of Central America, and the habitat of the Silesian tapeworm.
