Authorisms: Words Wrought by Authors.
Our most beloved authors coined many new words, some that never reappeared, and others that have stayed with us. Lexicographer Dickson presents the stories behind many of the neologisms brought to us by Shakespeare, Austen, Scott, Vonnegut, Le Carre, and many more. Bloomsbury. 2014. Hb, Dj. NEW. $9.00
