Description

For nearly twenty years, Christopher Foyle has been collecting interesting and unusual words, ancient and modern. This ever-growing collection evolved into Foyle's Philavery, now followed by Foyle's Further Philavery - another anthology of linguistic treasures. This celebration of fascinating words, chosen for their aptness, obscurity, quirkiness or euphony, will delight all logophiles and bibliomaniacs.show more
