Captain Grose

My copy of the 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dictionary-Vulgar-Tongue-Francis-Grose/dp/1482340046 finally arrived from an eBay purchase today and some of it certainly is vulgar – more vulgar than I anticipated. I think it will be an excellent resources (for what I’m not sure). I’m just waiting for “Limbo Lodge” to arrive so that I might continue with the “Wolves of Willoughby Chase” series by Joan Aiken. However, I am content with “Midnight is a Place” also by Joan Aiken at the moment (though book marking is affecting my regular reading).
