London: George Routledge & Sons, Ltd., 1933. First edition, 8vo, pp. ix, [1], 476; original red cloth, dust jacket with small chips out at the extremities; a very good, sound copy. A classic in its own time, the work celebrates the "illegitimate" colloquial speech as a product of an "exuberance of mental activity, and the natural delight of language-making." Reprints of this book abound. This is the first time we have catalogued the first edition in a dust jacket. Item #41583

Price: $225.00
