In A Word
Margaret Ernst with James Thurber
In a Word
New York: Channel Press, 1960.
First illustrated edition thus.
This charming compendium, examining the origin of over 500 words, was first compiled in 1934.
James Thurber, a man fascinated by words and what happens when they are slightly changed, decided to illustrate this new edition in 1960.
Book is in fine condition, but jacket has several chips from edges and corners.
