Andre Deutsch, [London] 1952 - First edition, 8vo, pp. 140; spine very slightly discolored, else a fine copy in the dust jacket, enhanced by a presentation from Partridge to "Norman Davis - who may, in this elementary book, find a few things to amuse, perhaps one or two to instruct. With kind regards, Eric Partridge 6/12/1960." Also, with the dust-jacket price scribbled out by Partridge, and with his small ink corrections in the text on p. [7], 14, and 140. Norman Davis (1913-1989) was a New Zealand-born professor of English language and literature at the University of Oxford. Compiled by Partridge under the pseudonym Vigilans, "as he does not wish to become the victim of a man-hunt effected by a horde of enraged civil servants" (jacket blurb). Issued in the publisher's Language Library series. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
