Edward Lear by Ian Malcolm

You can now read Ian Malcolm’s 1908 overview of Lear’s career (mostly from the point of view of the Baring family) in the Nonsense section of the site bookshelf:

Ian Malcolm, “Edward Lear.” The Cornhill Magazine, vol. 24, January 1908, pp. 25-36, as reprinted in The Living Age, vol. 256, no. 3319, 15 February 1908, pp. 467-75.

I have also added, in the Comics section, a long article on Ally Sloper:

Elizabeth Robins Pennell. “The Modern Comic Newspaper. The Evolution of a Popular Type.” The Contemporary Review, vol. 50, October 1886, pp. 509-23.
