About this title
In 1855, when Jose da Fonseca and Pedro Carolino wrote an English phrasebook for Portuguese students, they faced just one problem: The didn't know any English. All they had was a Portuguese-to-French dictionary, and a French-to-English dictionary. The linguistic train wreck that ensued is a classic of unintentional humor, now revived in the first newly selected edition in a century.About the Author:
Paul Collins is editor of the Collins Library and author of "Banvards Folly" (Picador) and the forthcoming travelogue memoir "Sixpence House" (Bloomsbury USA).
