The Box Set

Just to say, that for any of you still struggling with what to buy for Christmas, there is a box set of The Etymologicon, The Horologicon and The Elements of Eloquence in hardback. It's called the Ternion Set, not because it turns you on (though it may), but because ternion is an old word for a set of three.

You may obtain it from all good bookshops (and, no doubt, some sinful ones). You may also order it online from:



The Book Depository

  1. I have just unwrapped it. My mother seems to think that I might enjoy it (or rather, them). I expect she is right, as a) she assures me she always is, and b) I love this sort of thing. So thank you in advance for brightening my post-Christmas days.
