This is a bibliography page, concerning a work to which reference is made elsewhere in this guide.

Johnson, Samuel, (1755) A dictionary of the English language, (2 vols), London, W. Straham
(There have been many editions and reprints, including a facsimile printed in 1979 by Times Books and sold as a single volume.)

An on-line text - a version of a copy in the University of Harvard's Kress Library of Business and Economics, has been consulted in the writing of AWE. The first page of the Dictionary proper, for example, is cited thus:
Johnson, Samuel. A dictionary of the English language: in which the words are deduced from their originals, and illustrated in their different signfications [sic] by examples from the best writers. To which are prefixed, a history of the language, and an English grammar. Volume 1. London, 1755. 2 vols. The Making of the Modern World. Gale 2008. Gale, Cengage Learning. University of Hull. 05 July 2008 <>
