An Alphabet of Celebrities (1899)

Intricately rhymed and beautifully illustrated alphabet book on the world of late 19th century celebrity. It ends up creating quite wonderfully bizarre a-historical scenarios by throwing names with the same beginning letter all in with each other - for the letter N: "N is for Napoleon, shrouded in gloom,/ With Nero, Narcissus, and Nerdau, to whom/ He's explaining the manual of arms with a broom."
