Review

Review of the hardback: '… a captivating resource for those of us simply curious about the oddities of English place-names … This catalogue of place-names will make an essential tool for anyone seriously involved in the cartography or topography of the British Isles … It is a project that is dizzying in scale, and manages the rare trick of being a useful commercial resource, an unimpeachable scholarly reference and a source of great pleasure for the curious.' Rare Book Review

Review of the hardback: 'This is the first comprehensive, scholarly, single volume dictionary of English place-names … impressive … very unlikely that it will be superseded very soon … essential for all medium-sized libraries.' Reference Reviews

Review of the hardback: 'The Dictionary is a reliable and comprehensive fund of place-name data and there is much here to provide the interested reader not only with information but with many stimulating ideas.' Landscape History
