About this Item

2 parts in 1, as issued; 8vo, pp. 208, xiv, [15]-69, [70-114], 115-203, [1]; viii, [9]-33; frontis portrait and 9 engraved copperplates; nice copy in contemporary quarter green straight-grain morocco over marbled boards. Includes a 60-p. dialogue between Tim and his friends in the Lancashire dialect, a 44-p. glossary of Lancashire words and phrases, and miscellaneous poems and letters of Tim Bobbin, a.k.a. John Collier. The second part, with a separate title-p., is The Battle of the Flying Dragon, printed for the author Tim Bobbin. One of the earliest and best of the English dialect dictionaries, frequently printed over a period of more than 100 years. A life-long student of the Lancashire dialect, Collier was "an acute observer of character, and for many years used to take note of every quaint and out-of-the-way term or phrase he heard in the village alehouses and elsewhere" (DNB); and advanced the opinion that the Lancashire dialect "was the universal language of the earliest days of England.".
