This paperback edition of the revised and expanded Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable features hundreds of new entries on everything from blogs and designer babies to New York's mysterious sewer-dwelling alligators, as well as a selection of 'heritage entries' from a Victorian edition of Brewer's: see what the Victorians thought of things like enchanted castles, magic garters and poison detectors. The sheer scope of Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, together with its delightful mix of scholarship and eccentricity, makes it a must for every 21st-century bookshelf. Brewer's.

'By judicious updating and editing and by dint of its elegant design and printing, this latest edition retains as strong a place in its reference market niche as it ever did; long may that continue.' [Stuart James, Past Editor, Reference Reviews, and formerly University Librarian, University of Paisley, UK]An idiosyncratic adventure, pulling you in and saying: "this is, in fact, not what you were|looking for; but it's much more interesting." [Terry Pratchett]Of all the dictionaries in the world [Brewer's] is the most like a treasure-hunt, where one phrase leads to another, and that to a third, and before you know what's happened, it's time for lunch. [Philip Pullman]Brewer's head-words are so enticing and his definitions so eloquent that it's impossible to stop at one. An addiction may develop. [Carol Rumens, The Independent]'The essential companion to your dictionary and thesaurus' | [Writing Magazine]
