Dictionary of Phrase and Fable Giving the Derivation, Source, or Origin of Common Phrases, Allusions, and Words That Have a Tale to Tell by E Cobham Brewer, New Edition, to Which is Added a Concise Bibliography of English Literature, [c1898 with 1894 preface], 1440 pgs, 5.5x8.25, hardbound, not illustrated, Henry Altemus Co, Philadelphia, PA. This very thick book is filled with obscure facts and tidbits including a section of dying phrases (last words) that had become famous (or infamous as you will). It is a gold mine for anyone who loves to quote obscure bits of trivia about people (real or fictional) or decipher ambiguous phrases from plays, historical texts or early novels. This price includes media mail shipping.

Condition: Good condition with wear to cloth spine, front hinge cracked, light fore-edge soil. An old newspaper article concerning the number of women listed in “Who’s Who” has caused browning to adjacent pages - the article is actually interesting so I have left it inserted (it is loose, not glued). The contents are otherwise Very Good, clean and legible.
