Title misnomer!, 28 Sept. 2003
A disappointing reference book as its title bears little resemblence to its contents!
As a dictionary of "Phrase and Fable" I expected rather more in the way of phrases. The first three pages only explain four!
The remaining entries explain such words as "abbot" and "abolitionists".
Dictionary? Yes! Of "Phrase and Fable"? Definitely not!
I recommend you glance at a copy before parting with your cash as, like me, you may not be getting what you bargained for.
