This compact reference book covers the topic of eponyms - those words in the English language which are also the names of people who have become so associated with a product, service or concept that their proper names have been given to them. This enlarged edition now contains over 500 eponyms, including such new words as listeria and Becquerel, each of which is defined and accompanied by a short account of its originator, its history and its claim to this unusual form of immortality. The result is an informative dictionary which offers entertaining browsing in addition to reference value.
