EDITED BY REV. THOMAS DAVIDSON ASSISTANT-EDITOR OF 'CHAMBERS'S ENCYCLOPÆDIA' EDITOR OF 'CHAMBERS'S ENGLISH DICTIONARY Since there are many other updated English dictionaries online and otherwise in the digital form, downloading this dictionary of the yesteryears might not be of any use as a means to find the meaning of English words. However to those who would like to know the whereabouts of the pristine-English that was there in pristine-England, this dictionary would be an ideal possession. It was an age when many English letters came in various combined form - the so-called Alphabetic ligatures. Another mentionable item would be insights that can be had on what were original meanings of various English words. There are so-many words whose meaning has altered much over the past few years and decades.

Traditional hedgerows are rapidly vanishing from our countryside. With their disappearance, we lose not only their flora and fauna but also the tales and folklore that have always surrounded them. This book records these stories before they disappear from memory. With chapters dedicated to specific plants or animals, we learn about the folklore of the hedgehog, the badger, woodmouse, thrush, wren, bumblebee, hawthorn, foxglove and hazel and many more. These are tales of wisdom and magic that help us to gain a greater understanding of the natural world we live in and which encourage us to live in closer harmony with that world.
