Gathered here in one convenient reference are thousands of archaic, obscure, or obsolete terms from many sources including: legal, religious, foreign, colloquial, monetary, ethnic, historical, medical, geographical, occupational, and more. Also included are two appendices: a list of nicknames and a list of Dutch given names. This expanded third edition is an amazing compilation of words, phrases, and abbreviations that researchers are likely to encounter in old books, manuscripts, and documents.
