Why We Love This

A Book About a Thousand Things by George Stimpson. Harper, 1947. Hardcover with no dust jacket. First edition. 513 pages. This book's author was a lifelong newspaperman. The book is a collection of much of the curiosities, trivia, and essential facts such persons need and accumulate over many years, and is an utter delight to read. Learn the origins of sayings, who first said a famous quote, how a unit of measurement originated, etc.
