5.0 out of 5 stars Talking Point
Great fun. The sort of etymological information you talk about at drinks parties. I loved it so much I downloaded the full 18th Century dictionary from Project Gutenberg.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly as described
Its not so much a book on 18th century insults but more of a 18th century urban dictionary. Alot of words inside are not actually insults but words and their definitions such as words which mean dead, which is not actually an insult. Little dissapointed as the title is very misleading

This review is from: Lobcocks and Fartleberries: 18th-Century Insults to confound Your Foes (Paperback)
Bought this as a present for friend going into hospital. Thought it would provide interesting chunks of info to dip into, but I was a litle dissapointed at the lack of detail or context, it's more like a dictionary & not best suited for a hospital read. However my friend likes it.
