Overview

This indispensible guide to 'Slang, University Wit and Pickpocket Eloquence' contains fascinating insights into the humour and mentality of its compilers. Enrich your vocabulary with the vulgar witticisms fashionable 200 years ago; wince at jests considered well beyond the pale today. 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue is reproduced here unabridged, in its politically incorrect glory.

Author Biography

Campbell McCutcheon has had a life-long interest in the Olympic-class vessels and naval shipping. He has written extensively on the subject along with some Military History and Bradshaw’s Railway titles for Amberley. He lives in Gloucestershire, but he was born within sight and sound of the water and has been interested in ships from a young age.
