Severn, Bill PEOPLE WORDS
New York: Ives Washburn, Inc., (1966). First edition. Hardcover. Offsetting (from a laid-in news clipping) to front endsheets, otherwise this would be a fine, fresh copy in vivid green cloth lettered in black to the spine; in a faintly age-toned, mildly rubbed illustrated dust jacket.
A collection of eponyms--words or expressions that grew out of proper names--from "According to Hoyle" to "Zombie." Entertaining and informative. 184 pages, including index.
