Adapted from a page of Samuel Johnson’s Dictionary of 1755, in which, for the first time, as the title page describes, ‘words are deduced from their originals, and illustrated in their different significations by examples from the best writers’. Compiled by Johnson alone over a period of ten years, the book is a towering achievement of scholarship and one of the most important books ever published.
