Encyclopedia > Nathan Bailey

Nathan Bailey (d. June 27, 1742) was an English philologist and lexicographer.


He compiled a Dictionarium Britannicum: a more complete universal etymological English dictionary than any extant, bearing the date 1730, but supposed to have been published in 1721. This was a great improvement on all previous attempts, and formed the basis of Dr Johnson's great work.


Bailey, who was a Seventh Day Baptist (admitted 1691), had a school at Stepney, and was the author of Dictionarium Domesticum and several other educational works.
