    Both scholarly and entertaining, this set of dictionaries is 'a browser's paradise'. One volume defines and traces the origins of almost 300 commonly used words, from 'accolade' to 'zoo'; another provides detailed explanations of over 400 idioms in current use; English Down the Ages starts from historical events (from 1066 to 1989) and explores how they brought new vocabulary into the language; and the Dictionary of Proverbs and Their Origins explains a selection of 400, chosen for their interesting etymologies and stories. Slip-cased.
