    Sobriquets and Nicknames by Frey, Albert R

    Ticknor and Fields, Boston 1888 [Gale Research Co. Reprint - Detroit, MI], 1966. Hardcover. Fine/No jacket. "We are informed that in the fourteenth century the word 'sobriquet' was employed to express a sound of contempt, 'half whistle and half jeer,' and that in pronouncing it the chin was slightly and rapidly elevated. In the course of time the term has undergone some modifications and the reader of today, no matter what especial branch of literature or history... must have encountered these peculiar names. It appears somewhat strange that no book has as yet been issued which is devoted to the explanation and derivation of these witty and in some instances, abusive, appellations; and to remedy this defect the present work was undertaken." [Preface, Albert R Frey, 1888] A companion book for early literature and poetry, it remains a helpful resource.This is an intriguing, small dictionary with an Index by True Names, published in 1888 by Ticknor and Company, Boston. This copy is a reprint by Gale Research Co., Detroit, 1966. Rare. 1ST THUS.
