Assembled by the president of the American Chesterton Society, it features alphabetical entries of Chesternitions pithy and poetic definitions of words in the spirit of Samuel Johnson. Great for casual browsing or cover-to-cover study, the volume includes more than two dozen of Chesterton's distinctive drawings.
