Regency Slang Revealed

Late Georgian and Regency dictionaries of slang and cant have long been a source of fascination (sometimes appalled fascination!) for historians, historical novelists and readers alike. But all of the – from the iconic Grose’s Classical Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue to Pierce Egan and John Bee’s versions – have been arranged only in alphabetical order of the word of phrase. There has been no way to search for the word for a specific thing or to browse all the terms relating to a subject. This volume allows both with a thematic section and a full index. Armed with Regency Slang Revealed the reader can discover over forty terms for having sex, numerous phrases for the parts of the body and its appearance and gain a fascinating – and alarming – insight into the Regency underworld.
