1 Brown, Ivor RANDOM WORDS
London/Sydney/Toronto: The Bodley Head, (1971). 0370013549 / 9780370013541 First edition. Hardcover. Fine, in cheerfully decorated boards; in a neatly price-clipped matching dust jacket; a sticker from the distributor ''Transatlantic Arts'' has been affixed to the lower front panel. A beautiful, as-new copy! 
One of Brown's series of irresistible "Word Books"--produced as small, slender octavo volumes; this entry offers up tributes to the magic and mystery of individual words ranging from "Abhominable" to "Wood-wandering." A delight. 
Price: 35.00 USD

2 Brown, Ivor WORDS IN SEASON
Soho Square, London: Rupert Hart-Davis, 1961. First edition. Hardcover. Tiny smudge to one page, one corner tip very lightly bumped, else this would be a fine copy in decorated boards; in a matching dust jacket that has been neatly price-clipped by the publisher and a new price rubber-stamped to the lower front flap. 
Amateur (in the truest sense) word fancier Brown turns his easy-going scholarship and appealing prose style to the investigation of words associated with the seasons, following the year as it ripens in blossom and fruit, sports and recreations. 
Price: 50.00 USD

3 Brown, Ivor WORDS ON THE LEVEL
London/Sydney/Toronto: The Bodley Head, (1973). 037010241X / 9780370102412 First edition. Small octavo. Hardcover. Fine, in gaily striped decorated boards; in neatly price-clipped matching dust jacket; a sticker from the distributor ''Transatlantic Arts'' has been affixed to the lower front panel. A pristine copy. 
In this entry in his incomparable series, Brown makes a lively and entertaining plea for the rescue and enrichment of an English language he views as increasingly flattened and impoverished. This volume begins with "Ambragious" and ends with "Weadle." 
Price: 35.00 USD
