John Camden Hotten
This chapter examines John Camden Hotten's Slang Dictionary, which was published in five volumes between 1859-1874, and republished thereafter for many years. Hotten's was a dictionary of the people for the people. It is still frequently used for reference, but its contents are often unreliable, particularly the etymologies.
