An earlier review of this book disparages it, and says that much of it is the result of the fevered imagination of the compiler. Well, I interloaned its three volume edition as published by Athlone and am reading it at the moment, and that seems extremely unfair.; Citations are given for almost all the entries, and reading is believing. This is a very well thought-through as well as erudite dictionary and we should be grateful that it exists. No reading of Shakespeare especially will ever be the same..

This book is a riot. I fell onto it at page 680, it's wonderful to know that i can go back to the beginning when i'm too old to actually do it.
