Synopsis: This indispensible guide to 'Slang, University Wit and Pickpocket Eloquence' contains fascinating insights into the humour and mentality of its compilers. Enrich your vocabulary with the vulgar witticisms fashionable 200 years ago; wince at jests considered well beyond the pale today. 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue is reproduced here unabridged, in its politically incorrect glory.
