Ever heard of the saint for hangover sufferers? It is St. Bibiana, a fact pertinent to the word "bibulous". "Forgotten English" is a charming collection of such information, including hundreds of archaic words, their definitions, and old-fashioned line drawings. Each selection is accompanied by literary excerpts demonstrating the word's usage, from sources such as Shakespeare, Dickens, Chaucer, and Benjamin Franklin.
