Críticas:

This work is erudite, massively learned, and meticulously documented and, by some magic instilled into it, both informative and entertaining. [ ] G[illiver]'s claim on the first page of the preface that his being an insider and a working lexicographer is of some advantage is amply justified at every turn in this book [ ] It is no mean feat to digest the multitudinous [ ] minutiae-into a readable and even suspenseful narrative, but Gilliver has pulled it off admirably. The richness of documentary material that underpins this book is remarkable. [ ] The splendid achievement of this book will, despite the fact that new information will inevitably be found and new theories be propounded, deservedly stand as the definitive history of the OED for many years to come. (Language)

Definitive. (Jamie Camplin, History Today)

As befits such a story, and ultimately such an intellectual and prestigious triumph for Oxford University Press, this history is contained in an exemplary volume. The footnotes are legion but never intrusive, there is a 14-page bibliography and an excellent index. The whole is designed and produced in an elegant, handsome and welcoming volume, which does its author, his publishers and, above all, its subject proud. (Stuart James, Reference Reviews)

Skilfully telling the story of a national treasure ... Gilliver provides a peerless progress report. It is to his credit that for all the inescapable longueurs of dictionary production, this account has something of the ripping yarn... Like its equivalent dictionaries across the world, the OED is a national treasure. That it has a fascinating story is to be expected. That it is told by so skilled a narrator as Peter Gilliver is a bonus: both for the great work, and for those who read this book. (Jonathon Green, Times Literary Supplement)

Painstaking and scholarly account... a story which leaves you mentally breathless by the time you arrive at the end... if you're genuinely interested in the English language, and enjoy your linguistic history leavened with quirky details and a touch of dry humour, it's a book which any true language-lover should have on their shelf. (Moira, Vulpes Libris)

In conclusion: The book gives an absorbing and vivid account and a detailed and exhaustive presentation of the meticulously researched facts dealing with the development of the OED and its related dictionaries. At the same time it is a worthy and meritorious tribute to the hundreds of people, who collaborated in establishing one of the great historical dictionaries. (J.C.M.D. du Plessis, Lexikos)

Fascinating. (The Story Reading Ape)

The most wonderful book has just come out. I hate to use the word 'definitive' about any book, but this one justifies it. (David Crystal, DCBlog)

A dream book for logophiles. (Europaeum Bulletin)

This is a riveting read. (Pat Ashworth, Church Times)

Reseña del editor:

This book tells the history of the Oxford English Dictionary from its beginnings in the middle of the nineteenth century to the present. The author, uniquely among historians of the OED, is also a practising lexicographer with nearly thirty years' experience of working on the Dictionary He has drawn on a wide range of sources―including previously unexamined archival material and eyewitness testimony―to create a detailed history of the project. The book explores the cultural background from which the idea of a comprehensive historical dictionary of English emerged, the lengthy struggles to bring this concept to fruition, and the development of the book from the appearance of the first printed fascicle in 1884 to the launching of the Dictionary as an online database in 2000 and beyond. It also examines the evolution of the lexicographers' working methods, and provides much information about the people―many of them remarkable individuals―who have contributed to the project over the last century and a half.
