"Lawyer: One skilled in circumvention of the law." Wickedly lampooning standard dictionaries, this classic of American humor was an instant success upon its 1911 publication. Complete and unabridged, our new paperback gift edition presents more than 1,000 comic definitions praised by H. L. Mencken as "some of the most gorgeous witticisms in the English language."
