Bought as a Christmas gift but enjoyed by all. Brought back many memories of words and phrases used by older members of our family and friends and times past. Reminded us of the richness of our wonderful language. Thank you very very much Mr Redding Ware.

I expected something a little more comprehensive. It would be a good companion to a standard dictionary of the period.
