Dr Johnson's Reliquary of Rediscovered Words: Second Edition

Dr Johnson lists a large number of words which appear, for one reason or another, to have disappeared from everyday English. For each of these he gives an accurate definition, followed by a comment which is always distinctly tongue-in-cheek. This is a book full of wit and humour which can be dipped into at any time. The book was later taken up by Square Peg, an imprint of Random House, and although the original Marius Press paperback and hardback editions are now both out-of-print, the revised and expanded Square Peg version is still available, and details are given here.
