This biography of the first editor of the Oxford English Dictionary is based on original documents. It is an account of how the dictionary was compiled, the problems the editor had to solve and the endless difficulties which nearly led to the whole project being abandoned.
1977. Third printing. A near fine copy only marked by faint age tanning to the edges of the text block and a previous owners bookplate to the front pastedown. The d/w is unclipped and very good with sunfading to the spine.
