Rumford Book Store

Recomended Books on Fireplaces and Chimneys and Other Stuff


The Compact Oxford English Dictionary/Book, Magnifying Glass and User's Guide

by Edmund S. Weiner (Editor), John Simpson (Editor)

Simply all the words in the English language with a first use of each word in contextual quotation plus and least two other quotations per century and at least one for every subtle shift or difference in meaning. It took 70 years to compile - most of the nineteenth century. I thought it amazing that Shakespeare didn't have the use of a dictionary. - Jim Buckley
