[GROSE, FRANCIS. 1731?-1791.]
A Classical Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue. London: S. Hooper, 1785.
8vo (215 x 130 mm). Near period speckled calf gilt, red morocco spine label. Lacking half title, joints cracked, light wear to binding.

Unusually attractive copy of this early slang dictionary. Grose is entertaining in both the definitions themselves and the rationalizations for this work in the preface.
