A Concise Dictionary of Middle English from A.D. 1150 to 1580
Newly type-set reprint of A Concise Dictionary of Middle English (1888) by the prominent Middle English scholars and lexicographers Rev. A. L. Mayhew, M.A. of Wadham College, Oxford, and Rev. Walter W. Skeat, Litt.D.; LL.D. Edin.; M.A. Oxon., Ellington and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon in the University of Cambridge. This Dictionary will easily pave the way for a clearer understanding of the birth of modern English while providing the medieval English reader with an invaluable resource for tackling all of the important English texts published between 1150 to 1580 A.D. Originally published by Oxford at the Clarendon Press, this new edition should not be confused with other significantly pricier "facsimile" editions or "scanned" editions which do not preserve the original Middle English and Greek alphabet characters of the original book.
