A Jane Austen Dictionary.

SKU: 13147

Very good first edition in intact jacket. George Latimer Apperson [1857-1937], the author of English proverbs and Proverbial Phrases and The Social History of Smoking, was also a major contributor to the Oxford English Dictionary. He was editor of The Antiquary from 1899-1915. His goal for the JA Dictionary is to name every person, place, book, and author named in Austen's novels, fragments, and juvenilia, the titles of all her works, and the names of family members and friends with brief biographies. Character entries are often defined by a quote from another character about them, from the novel, which is how we learn about them after all. Gilson M544. Near fine other than a light cock to the spine and some minor discoloration of the jacket. Cecil Palmer. London. 1932. Hb, Dj. USED. $110
