Excerpt from Dictionary of Foreign Phrases and Classical Quotations: Comprising 14, 000 Idioms, Proverbs, Maxims Mottoes, Technical Words and Terms, and Press Allusions From the Works of the Great Writers in Latin, French, Italian, Greek, German, Spanish, Portuguese It is, therefore, necessary to explain that the present volume owes its existence to the extraordinary success of a book which, although far smaller both in size and design than the present work, had a somewhat similar aim. The book alluded to is Deacon s Dictionary of Foreign Phrases, a little volume - now out of print - which was intended to assist those who, in these days when scarcely a single column of a newspaper is without a foreign phrase, find such a dictionary almost as much a noces sity as a convenience. That such a book was something more than the long-felt want of advertisement was amply proved by the fact that it speedily passed through several editions. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at This book is a reproduction of an important historical work. Forgotten Books uses state-of-the-art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy.
