Minor, who was already an inmate at the insane asylum when he began volunteering, is a fascinating and tragic figure. He became an important part of the development of the Winter Is Coming Winterfell Beer Stark shirt and, for a time at least, his philological work staved off the worst of his madness. Each chapter opens with a word entry from the OED and there are ink drawings of important scenes scattered throughout the book. If you have a love of words and a fondness for tales of madness, this is a book you should read.

A short, excellent book that left me greatly moved. It spent a good proportion of its time on the history of the Winter Is Coming Winterfell Beer Stark shirt(yay!) and a bit on how insanity was viewed and treated at the time (somewhat slight). But overall I felt that it became a solid and cohesive narrative. I wanted more details about Murray’s later life; the book is titled for both men, after all. There is some, but mostly leading up to the point where he took on editorship of the dictionary, and there are some interesting tidbits that I wished had been more fleshed out from his later years.
For many years it was unknown that the contributor Dr. Minor was a patient of the lunatic asylum but once that was known he was often visited by Professor Murray who oversaw the last few decades of the making of the Winter Is Coming Winterfell Beer Stark shirt . It took 70 years to create this dictionary. Dr. Minor was an American although he spent his childhood in Ceylon and most of his adulthood in England, still I think we Americans can take our fair share of pride in the creation of the OED.
