Uncle, or the Rest of the Rest of the Rebuses

This is the group of rebuses that we’re partially or wholly clueless about. We don’t know if it’s because we simply don’t know the books and therefore don’t recognize the correct solution when we see it; or that the image used is so obscure or poor, we don’t know what we’re looking at; or, quite possibly, we’re just too dense to figure them out. We are hoping that one or more of you will be more clever or well read than we are and will be able to come up with the solution. Or maybe you’re better at plugging some of these clues into Google and coming out with an answer that way…sure, go ahead.

A few comments on these first.

In #3, the objects in the lower right corner are no clearer in person that what you see here.  We don’t have a clue what they are.

In #6, the black shape in the center has been blacked out on the original rebus.  Otherwise the image is a single picture, not a collage.

In #17, the wings and stuff are all one image.  Only the ampersand has been collaged in.

Don’t know if any of that helps but maybe.

We hope you have better luck with these that we have had. We will check next Sunday on how you are doing on these but we may extend the deadline since there are so many and they are pretty obscure.

  1. I solved the last two (at least I think I did) without much thinking — really!!! Googled the first thing that popped into my head for each and — low an behold — old books by those names exist!!! #18 — A Knight of the 19th Century by E.P Rowe written in the late 1800s; #19 — The Broken Boot by John Galsworthy (1867-1933), publication date not readily available in my quick checking.

    The others — wow!!! But I’m inclined to think those strange looking items at the lower right in #3 are cats’ tails, but that’s not helping much.

    And I’ll throw in an answer for #6 that probably isn’t correct, but I just like — Wuthering Heights. Always wondered just what ‘wuthering’ meant :p

    • Wow, you were the only one who got any of the “mystery” titles, so I am sending you a “prize.” Wuthering is a strong wind that sounds like a roar.
