Description
First published in 1870 by Dr. Ebenezer Cobham Brewer, the legendary Brewer’s has been updated many times since then, and so in this 18th edition you will find Harry Potter, blog, designer babies, and road rage, alongside the unfailingly amusing and instructive entries of yesteryear. In his foreword, the author of The Golden Compass describes this tome as “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.” Among the thousands of definitions are historical figures, mythology, folk expressions, cultural allusions, and plenty of eclectic vocabulary words.
