A brilliant history of the OED written by an actually editor. Fascinating insights into the men and women who created the dictionary and the ways they treated foreign words and words from varieties of English spoken around the world. Very scholarly, and challenging in parts, but beautifully written. Perfect for anyone interested in the history of English and the making of dictionaries.
