9780199696123: The Concise Oxford Dictionary: The Classic First Edition

The Concise Oxford English Dictionary, today a world-famous bestseller, has always been a ground-breaking dictionary. In its first edition, The Concise Oxford Dictionary was adapted by Henry Watson Fowler and Francis George Fowler from The Oxford Dictionary (now known as the Oxford English Dictionary). It was revolutionary at the time for covering current English usage and common words and excluding obsolete words. It was the dictionary for speakers and writers in the early 20th century, rival to none.

From the beautiful art deco detailing to the faithfully reproduced pages, this edition of The Concise Oxford Dictionary authentically replicates the original 1911 publication. Includes an introduction with an essay from today's foremost commentator on language, David Crystal, setting the book in the political and social context of its time.

About the Author:

Henry Watson Fowler (10 March 1858 - 26 December 1933) was an English schoolmaster, lexicographer and commentator on the usage of the English language. He is notable for both A Dictionary of Modern English Usage and his work on the Concise Oxford Dictionary, and was described by The Times as "a lexicographical genius".

Review:

"a marvel of condensation, achieved by skilful hands" --Modern Language Notes, for the original 1911 edition

"the best small dictionary extant" --Scotsman, for the original 1911 edition

"literally without a rival" --TLS, for the original 1911 edition
