Book Description Constable, London, 1984. Hardback. Condition: Mint. Dust Jacket Condition: Mint. First Edition. James McDonald's book manages to be both erudite and a good read. Some books on etymology fail because they don't flow. Many others accept the most ridiculous folk etymology because the author has read an explanation somewhere on the Net and has no criteria with which to judge. Wordly Wise is thankfully properly fact-checked and coherently structured. A must for anyone seriously interested in the English language. This mint unread copy is bound in cloth covered boards with bright gilt titling to the spine, tight, white, bright and square. The unclipped dust wrapper is in mint condition. International postal rates are calculated on a book weighing 1 Kilo, in cases where the book weighs less then postage will be reduced accordingly. Where the book weighs more than 1 Kilo increased charges will be quoted. Ref FF5 Size: 294pp. Seller Inventory # 016720
