Set of 3 Volumes. THE AMERICAN LANGUAGE, Corrected, enlarged, & rewritten 4th Edition, 13th Printing, 1955, with SUPPLEMENT I (1952, 5th Printing) & II (1956, 3rd Printing). Physical condition for all 3 volumes: Text/As New; Linen boards/Fine; DJ/None; and, dyed upper text edges. Classic study of the American language. Journalist, crtic and essayist Henry Louis Mencken (1880 - 1956) writing on the subject in 1910. In the preceding first three editions (1919, 1921, & 1923, he argued that the American form of English was not only departing from the parent stem, but the gap between the two would progressly increase over time. After 1923, Mencken noted the "pull of American" language had become so powerful that "it began to drag English along with it", and some once notable differences had begun to disapppear. It is this observation precipitated this substantially revised 4th Edition, which is in a real sense a separate work. An indispensible work for scholars of the English language, the book is written wit, flair and humor and sheer pleasure for the amateur linguists as well. Fine 3 Volume Set, less dust jackets.
