(Author’s note – I found an American 1935 edition of Roget’s Thesaurus at an estate sale last week. It is in very good condition. The 1935 American edition has the distinction of being the very first one issued with the sanction and approval of Samuel Romilly Roget, the author’s grandson and holder of the existing British copyright. Previous American printings were not authorised by Roget and are considered ‘incomplete’. I chose ‘atonement’ for One Word Blog Day as it was the entry I came upon when I first opened the book. vmls)
