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.
