Description
Since 1870, Brewer's has been the place to go for words and expressions not found in normal dictionaries. As exhaustive as it is whimsical, this treasury of "words that have a tale to tell" has established itself as one of the most beloved reference books ever. Alongside entries on a vast range of word and phrase origins are articles on mythology and religion, and on folk customs, superstitions, and beliefs. Brewer and his subsequent editors have added unique takes on history, movements in art and literature, famous literary characters, and popular culture, philosophy, geography, science, and magic. Plus, there's an extraordinary miscellany of general knowledge, including lists of patron saints, famous last words, frequently mispronounced words, and much more.
