Francis Grose, an elected fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, traveled extensively throughout the British Isles and featured in several of Robert Burns' poems. He died in Dublin of an apoplectic fit in 1791.
A selection from the original slang dictionary The Vulgar Tongue, including such gems as "Bitch Bobby" (a country wench) and lobcock (a large relaxed penis or a dull inanimate fellow)
If someone called you a beetle-browed bastardly gullion and told you to shut your bone box, would you be offended? If you lived in 1785, you most certainly would! Harking back to a time when insults and rude words were considerably more colorful, this collection is one that no true aspiring vulgarite or rude language lover should be without.
