Product Overview

With an Introduction containing numerous specimens of macronic poetry, punning mottoes, rhopalic, shaped, equivocal, lyon, and echo verses, alliteration, acrostics, lipograms, chronograms, logograms, palindromes, bouts and rimes. Anagrams have for so long been held in little esteem that we shall not be surprised that there are few who are aware that these literary amusements once knew better days. There were times, when great poets considered the making of Anagrams and Acrostics a pleasing and elegant relaxation; and when some individuals were so expert in their construction, they obtained the honorable designation of Anagrammatists.
