The Google Book

by V.R. Vickers

An illustrated book of children’s verse by Vincent Cartwright Vickers. Originally published in 1913 by J & E Bumpus Limited, London, at Vickers’ expense in a limited edition of 100 copies. The book has surrealist illustrations of various imaginary birds, alongside short poems about them. The Google of the title is a strange creature that lives in a pool in a beautiful garden and at night prowls the land where the birds live.

The 2022 edition is published by Ecen Books with the support of the Sun Street Hotel.

THE QUILLED ORNERY

Pompous plumes! Yet...cold inside;
Beauty masking sneering pride.
Alone he struts...none slip within;
Beware the barbs! They scythe and spin.
Unkind beauty wears so thin
Let’s relax now? Mine’s a gin!

The Google Book by V.R. Vickers - former governor of the Bank of England.
