Treasure trove of information,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, 19th Edition (Hardcover)
I had never heard of Brewers dictionaries, but came across the name while writing a review for another work. A little research revealed this, (and other volumes which I eventually got from AbeBooks), and so I took the plunge. The book is a mine of information, as the description on its page explains, stuff that is available elsewhere, but not usually collected for convenience. I believe it will be useful to me for years to come.
