JUST PUBLISHED: Sarah Ogilvie, The dictionary people

Sarah Ogilvie’s The Dictionary People: The unsung heroes who created the Oxford English Dictionary, published by Chatto & Windus, draws on new source material — due to an exciting chance find — to tell previously untold stories of the people whose efforts gave us the first edition of the Oxford English Dictionary.

The book has attracted a wealth of press coverage: see for example the reviews in the Guardian (here) and in the Sydney Morning Herald (here).

Congratulations, Sarah!
