Comments

A dictionary of words commonly used in the legal profession, compiled by the lexicographer and antiquary Thomas Blount (1618-1679), author of numerous interesting works such as Glossographia, or a Dictionary (1656), Fragmenta Antiquitatis (1679), and histories of England. His Nomo-Lexikon attempts to make legal jargon more accessible to all, and it is the earliest example in English of a dictionary that includes etymologies and examples of the use of the word. Some contemporary annotations and underlinings in the text; shelf-mark on the fore-edge "Law / Dict / Blount / 17."
