His treatment of the English language is almost entirely concerned with individual words... traced to their origins in the languages contributory to English, in foreign importations, or in the creations of outstanding word-makers-- those poets and prose-writers who have enriched our speech; and the development in meaning of many words is followed historically, to show how they continually reflect and aptly express the life and thought of each age."

Toller, T. Northcote  
An Anglo-Saxon Dictionary Supplement Based on the Manuscript Collections of the Late Joseph Bosworth
 Picture
Publisher: Oxford University Press, 1921 Oxford, England.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall "A few words of explanation from the editor may seem called for in view of the amount of material, especially under the letters A-G, contained in this Supplement. As already mentioned in the Preliminary Notice to Parts I and II of the Dictionary and in the Preface to the Dictionary itself most of the work under A-F was printed before Dr. Bosworth's death; and much of that under G was mistakenly supposed to have been completed for the press. It is not then surprising that considering the advance made during the last fifty years in all that relates to the study of Old English a revisal of the earlier part of the Dictionary should call for large additions or alterations. In the case of the material under the letters from G to the3 end it is hoped that the need for an apology is less as is certainly the excuse for one.." 768 pages.
