Short Desription

A Concise Etymological Dictionary of the English Language '' was first published in 1882, and, after passing through several editions, appeared in 1901 in a new form, so largely re-arranged and re-written as to become, practically, a new book. The edition of 1901 has now been again revised, and numerous corrections have been made, chiefly due to the new light which has been thrown upon some woids by the advance of the publication of the New English Dictionary, and by the appearance of new works upon etymology. Among the latter I may especially instance the Laieinisches Etymologisches Worterluch by Dr. Alois Walde, published at Heidelberg; in 1006.
