Pocket Dictionary of The Vulgar Tongue

Originally published in 1785, this lexicon of English slang was compiled by a militia captain from the words and phrases he heard on his late-night excursions to London's slums, dockyards, and taverns. This handy pocket-sized edition will reveal the origin of phrases like 'birthday suit' and allow you to whip out vintage curse words at a moment's notice. Its subjects include money, drunkenness, the act of amorous congress, male and female naughty bits, and much, much more. The spiritual (and spirited) ancestor of Roger's Profanisaurus.
