About the book:

Lackbrain, oysterwench, wantwit, clotpoll--Samuel Johnson's famous dictionary of 1755 contained some of the ripest insults in the English language. In Samuel Johnsons Insults, Jack Lynch has compiled more than 300 of the curmudgeonly lexicographers mightiest barbs, along with definitions only the master himself could elucidate.

Word lovers will delight in flexing their linguistic muscles with devilishly descriptive vituperations that pack a wicked punch. Many of these zingers have long lain dormant. Some have even come close to extinction. Now theyre back in all their prickly glory, ready to be relished once more.
