The Akond Illustrated

Several months ago Amit Sheokand sent me the image below, showing manuscript illustrations for Edward Lear’s The Akond of Swat:


It is from a diary by one Ellen Burchett and has autographs by various people from 1923-1930. Amit, whowould like more information on the person or her family, says this is the only Lear-related material in the diary.

Video based on Ken Nordine’s version of the poem.
