New in Paper! Can you identify the "Bride of the Adriatic"?, the "Home of Bock Beer"?, the "Eye of Greece"?, the "Home of the Great Bed"?, the "Sick Man of Europe"? These nicknames and many others-appellations of countries, cities, mountains, rivers, capes and places of historical interest-are identified in Harold Sharp's concise but thorough volume. Arranged in one alphabetical listing, the book includes nicknames cross-referenced to the official name of each unit, shown as a main entry. Handbook of Geographical Nicknames will be of use to students of geography and reference librarians in both academic and public libraries since it brings together in one volume difficult-to-locate information scattered throughout the voluminous literature of the subject. Cloth version previously published in 1980.
