DICTIONARY of Archaic and Provincial Words, Obsolete

Phrases, Proverbs, and Ancient Customs from the reign of
Edward I. by JAMES ORCHARD HALLIWELL, F.R.S., F.S.A.,
&c. 2 vols. 8vo. CONTAINING UPWARDS OF 1000 PAGES,
CLOSELY PRINTED IN DOUBLE COLUMNS, cloth, 2. 28

This work, which has occupied the Editor some years, is now com

pleted; it contains above 50,000 words, (embodying all the known scattered glossaries of the English language) forming a complete key for the reader of the works of our old Poets, Dramatists, Theologians, and other authors whose works abound with allusions, of which explanations are not to be found in ordinary Dictionaries and books of reference. Most of the principal Archaisms are illustrated by examples selected from early inedited

MSS. and rare books, and by far the greater portion will be found to be original authorities. 2 A BRIEF Discourse of the troubles begun at Frankfort in the year 1554 about
