Description
Preface: The Devil?s Dictionary was begun in a weekly paper in 1881, and was continued in a desultory way at long intervals until 1906. In that year a large part of it was published in covers with the title The Cynic?s Word Book, a name which the author had not the power to reject or happiness to approve. To quote the publishers of the present work.
