Book Description
xii + 252pp. uncut, blue paper covers. Internally very good, just a bit of general wear. Covers are worn around the edges (where they overhang the text block and particularly around the spine), including a touch of loss to the top right front corner, but are otherwise good. A fascinating dictionary of East Anglian dialect, running from 'Abroad' meaning 'out to sea', to 'Yulk' translating to 'a heavy fall'. This is one title (actually No. 75) from a long-running series on language and dialect published for the English Dialect Society. Interestingly, the author, Walter Rye, was a British athlete and antiquary, who wrote over 80 works on Norfolk. A scarce title.
