This is a dictionary, written by a british soldier just after the American Revolution, of slang terms. The word "vulgar" means slang, though some of them are vulgar. This book was banned in military camps at the time.

It is an old dictionary of words that will "pitch kettle" (confound) people if you actually use them, and others are still around, like "to catch a crab" (to fall backwards by missing one's stroke in rowing). If you are into quirky dictionaries like this, then you'll enjoy it.

This book is hysterical, both educational and entertaining. It shows how normal people spoke over 200 years ago, and provides endless possibilities for insulting your friends.

On a more serious note, it was recommended by the folks who are Revolutionary War reenactor.
