Нью-Йорк, 1923 год. E. P. Dutton & Co.
Издательский переплет. Сохранность хорошая.
Сохранена оригинальная обложка. This book is an abridgment of the author’s Etymological Dictionary of Modern English published in 1921.
The process of abridgment has been carried out, not by omitting the less common words (for it is usually the uncommon word or the neologism that excites legitimate curiosity), but by making the explanations as brief as possible and by abstaining from the discussion of unsatisfying conjectures. It contains the whole of our literary and colloquial vocabulary, together with sufficient indications to show the origin of modern scientific terms.
