Who would have thought a book about the creation of a dictionary would be riveting reading?
Engaging story about the creation of the Oxford English Dictionary; the project's leader, professor James Murray; and one of its main contribotors, Dr. W. C. Minor. What twists this tale is the discovery that Dr Minor, a veteran of the American Civil War, is an inmate in an English insane asylum following his murder conviction.
I highly recommend this book!
