Early Modern English Lexicography presents for the first time a census of printed monolingual glossaries and dictionaries published from 1475 to 1640, together with a systematic bibliographical description of these works. The lemmatical material is listed alphabetically and documented according to the criteria of the Oxford English Dictionary. A second volume compiles additions and corrections to the Oxford English Dictionary documentation never before published, and discusses in detail lexicographical aspects pertinent to assembling this material. More than 5,000 main entries comprise neologisms, antedatings, post-datings, unregistered senses, additional citations, and corrections. Special attention is devoted to the question of lexical transmission through sources often overlooked in the Oxford English Dictionary. The volumes have been conceived as a specialized preliminary study of the growth and development of English lexicography in the Early Modern English period.
