Product description

'Gemel' is an old English word meaning 'twin' - Mark Forsyth's Gemel Edition brings together a Sunday Times Number One bestseller and its highly anticipated sequel in a beautiful, stylish box set which is ideal as a gift. The Etymologicon springs from Mark Forsyth's Inky Fool blog about the strange connections between words. The Horologicon - which means 'a book of things appropriate to each hour' - follows a day in the life of unusual, beautiful and forgotten English words.
