Edward Lear (1812-1888) was an English artist, illustrator, and author, perhaps best known for his nonsense verse and limericks. He often incorporated nonsense writing and drawings into correspondence with close friends and produced a number of manuscript alphabets for children of his acquaintance. The present manuscript was created for the children of Vandeleur Benjamin Crake (1816-1894), a Sussex county magistrate. Four other manuscript alphabets are recorded in: Noakes, Vivien.

Edward Lear was an English writer and artist. The youngest child in a large family, he received little formal education, and was looked after by his eldest sister until he found success as an illustrator, publishing a folio of parrot lithographs. He later honed his untrained style at the Royal Academy and became a popular landscape painter. Lear was a constant traveller, chiefly in the Mediterranean and Middle East regions, and published numerous travel books, usually generously illustrated. He is certainly best known for his nonsense verse and limericks, starting with A Book of Nonsense in 1846, which was based on poems and stories he invented for the Earl of Derby's grandchildren, and which has never been out of print.
