Pons Asinorum

Or

The Future of Nonsense

George Edinger and E J C Neep

Originally published in 1929.

"A most entertaining essay, rich in quotation from the old masters of clownship's craft." Saturday Review

The author maintains that true nonsense must be aimless humour - the humour that makes fun as opposed to the humour that makes fun of something.

Democritus

Or The Future of Laughter

Gerald Gould

Originally published in 1929.

"Democritus is bound to be among the favourites of the series. Gould's humour glances at history, morality, and humanity...wise and witty writing." Observer

Democritus is intended to illustrate the prevailing fashion in laughter and on the basis of historical and philosophical principles to forecast the humour of the future.

Mrs Fisher

Or The Future of Humour

Robert Graves

Originally published in 1928

"Mr Graves is the best man who could have been chosen to write on this subject." Daily Express

"...perfectly irresponsible, as a joker should be." The Times

This volume analyzes humour with a solemnity which becomes almost nightmarish.

90pp

Babel

Or the Past, Present and Future of Human Speech

Richard Paget

Originally published in 1930.

"...stimulating and absorbing." Journal of Education

This volume discusses human speech and treats it as a growth which must be tamed if it is to fulfil its highest purpose as a symbolism for human thought.
