Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable
Features new entries on everything from designer babies and social kissing to the Secret Seven and Spring-Heeled Jack as well as fascinating 'heritage entries' reproduced unchanged from the 1896 edition of Brewer's which cover all manner of intriguing topics including enchanted castles, magic garters and poison detectors. Broad in scope and a delightful mix of scholarship and eccentricity.
