An utterly enchanting publication - utterly unsmutched.,
This review is from: Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary: With additional material from A Thesaurus of Old English (Hardcover)
I rarely bother to give reviews for books - but this, oh this ... it landed on my desk 5 hours ago and I haven't been able to drag myself away since.
I can't believe this thesaurus - it is rich in words, joy and discovery and is a journey back into our past from whence I dare anyone to drag themselves.
I am a historian and historical novelist - for which this thesaurus is utterly indispensable (how in the world have I managed without it to this point??) - but anyone who loves words should lust for this publication.
It is, as it so elegantly taught me 30 minutes ago, utterly unsmutched.
