In 'The Little Book of Lost Words', history buff Joe Gillard presents a handy guide for expressing yourself with history's best words.

An A-Z collection of some of the most unique words in history, this delightful book deals with surprisingly modern issues - such as sleeping in and procrastination - proving that while our language may change, humans do not! 

The Little Book of Lost Words presents each term ready for modern-day use, complete with definition, hilarious sample sentence and cheeky historical art. You'll learn new words for your favourite cosy space (snuggery), for a dishonest politician (snollygoster), and for a youth who sleeps through the day and doesn't work (dewdropper). If you like 'Lost in Translation', 'Shakespeare Insults Generator', 'Drunk History' and 'Roald Dahl' - and if you enjoy the way words like blatteroon and flapdoodle roll off the tongue - then you're the word-lover this book was written for.
