A charm of words: essays and papers on language

London: Hamish Hamilton, [1960]. First edition, 8vo, pp. 190pp.; fine copy in the dust jacket. Inscribed by Partridge: "Dear John, You'll find a few things new to you. As ever, Eric, 15 September 1960." Partridge has also noted underneath this presentation "Pp. 13-20 & 32-39: v. slight indeed. Could well be ignored by J. W. C." The John and J. W. C. in the inscription is John W. Clark, sometimes collaborator of Partridge's and professor of English at the University of Minnesota, There is also a small correction in the text by Partridge on p. 127, and a scribble on the flap of the jacket, deleting the price.
