Description


This is more than just a dictionary of the speech of beggars, thieves, rogues, vagabonds, ne'er-do-wells, shopkeepers, workmen, soldiers, lords, dandies, actors, students, and parliamentarians, amongst others, though it is abundantly that; it is also a guidebook and an essay-collection that takes the reader on a journey deep into Victorian England, from the backstreet dens of the underworld all the way up to the offices of high society.
