This book does an important service to scholarship by rescuing the hitherto scattered and unpublished talks that Allen Walker Read, considered the dean of onomastics, gave to the American Name Society and other learned societies. Each of these papers bears the mark of an inquiring, industrious and insightful scholar whom Oxford University (where he was a Rhodes Scholar) eventually honoured with a doctorate of letters.
