Book Description Oxford University Press, 1972., 1972. xii, 1 leaf, 2048 pp; v, 1 leaf. pp. 2049-4116. Folio. Original cloth. Very Good, in original slipcase. The slipcase has some wear, and the magnifying glass that fits into the drawer compartment at the top of the slipcase is missing (a lot of magnifying glasses are missing!). The title page date in each volume is 1971, but on the verso of the title page is printed: "Second printing in the United States, June 1972." NOTE: If you are outside the United States, I advise that do not order this set. The set is very heavy. I will request an additional shipping charge, so that the shipping cost to you will far exceed the cost of the book. Bookseller Inventory # 16052

Book Description Clarenton Press, Oxford, 1987. Hardcover. Book Condition: In quite good condition. First Impression. Demy table, [35cm/14inches], full chrome-embossed Oxford-blue cloth with matching slipcase, pp. 1412. Please feel free to ask for particulars and/or additional photographs. Editor Burchfield Burchfield, (1923-2004) was born in New Zealand. After war service in the New Zealand Artillery, he graduated MA from Wellington in 1948 and won a Rhodes Scholarship to Magdalen College, Oxford University, in England, where he was tutored by C. S. Lewis. He became a Fellow of Magdalen and lecturer in English straight after graduating (1952–53), subsequently moving colleges to Christ Church (1953–57) and St Peter's (1955–79). Through C. T. Onions, the Magdalen librarian, Burchfield assisted in editing one of Onions’s projects, the Oxford Dictionary of English Etymology. His preparation of an edition of the Ormulum was supervised by J. R. R. Tolkien. Onions recommended him to Dan Davin as editor of the second Supplement to the Oxford English Dictionary, on which he worked from 1957 to 1986. He re-established the network of volunteer readers sending in records of words that had helped to create the original OED but had been allowed to fall away. In 2004, it emerged that Burchfield's second supplement had removed a large number of words that were present in the earlier 1933 supplement edited by Onions and William Craigie, which Burchfield's second supplement incorporated. Four years later the full nature of his treatment of foreign words was shown: he deleted 17 per cent of the foreign loan words and words from regional forms of English; and his coverage was not as extensive as his predecessors, especially Onions, who included 45 per cent more loanwords and World Englishes. In 2012, a book documented Burchfield's work and showed that many of the omitted words had only a single recorded usage, but their removal ran against both what was thought to be the established OED editorial practice and a perception that he had opened up the dictionary to "World English".The author of the book concerned, Sarah Ogilvie, complained that people were unfairly judging Burchfield and that her coverage had been misleadingly reported in the media. In retirement, he produced a controversial new edition, substantially rewritten and less prescriptivist, of Fowler's Modern English Usage, the long-established style guide by Henry Watson Fowler.
