An Exaltation of Larks, or The Venereal Game
by James Lipton
427 L66 (Find it in the Greenfield Open Stacks)

An Exaltation of Larks is a celebration of language. Lipton (famous host of Inside the Actor’s Studio) researched venereal terms back to the fifteenth century, and has composed a few of his own. The text is paired with beautiful engravings by Durer and Granville, among others, and it’s simply great fun for word and list lovers alike!
