About this collection

This digital collection features poems by John Tenniel (1820–1914) and others, with illustrations by Tenniel, pasted into a bound volume, with some sheets attached so as to fold out. "Bouts rimés" is a method of poetry composition where the author writes down the rhyming end words of each line first, and then fills in the rest of the poem. It is sometimes approached as a game, with one participant challenged to create coherent verse from absurdly incongruent end-words.
