A classical dictionary of the vulgar tongue. Edited with a biographical and critical sketch and an extensive commentary by Eric Partridge
Issued for private subscribers by the Scholartis Press, London 1931 - Edition limited to 550 copies printed at the Alcuin Press, this one of 10 copies numbered and signed by Eric Partridge and printed on rag paper, large 8vo, pp. [12], 396; 4 "corrigenda and consideranda" laid in; full brown pigskin, gilt title direct on spine, t.e.g., marbled endpapers; edges spotted, lower board bowed, near fine. Reprinted from the third edition of 1796. "Grose''s Dictionary is especially valuable because it does present so wonderful a picture of 18th-century colloquialisms, slang and cant." From a textual point of view this is undoubtedly the best edition. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
