Description: Newly type-set reprint of the 1888 Middle English Dictionary by Mayhew & Skeat Synopsis: A 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 reading and understanding all of the important English texts published between 1150 to 1580 A.D. Originally published by Oxford at the Clarendon Press, this long out-of-print Middle English Dictionary is newly available with type entirely reset. This 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.
