dc.description.abstractReviewers often like to start with a simple statement of what a book is all about. In the present case, this is difficult, because there are two books within these covers. The first three chapters fit its subtitle, 'The Story of the Australian National Dictionary', while the next seven fit the title "Lexical Images", being essays on aspects of Australian history and culture as reflected in the pages of the "Australian National Dictionary" (1988). If a single theme has to be extracted, it is that historical lexicography is a fascinating process, generating a valuable product.en
