Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0719554748, Paperback)

This dictionary offers the key to objects and rituals connected with the British country house. For example, it explains what a tweenie was, where you would find a crinkum-crankum wall, what a chesterfield is, how a clock jack would improve your dinner, what priest-holes were, and other matters.
