1933 lunch menu front cover
As with the completion of the first edition of OED in 1928, the Goldsmiths' Company hosted a celebratory meal to mark the completion of the Supplement, which the publishers regarded as 'the consummation of the labours of three-quarters of a century' which would close this chapter in Oxford dictionary-making. This time it was a more modest lunch, not a dinner, but it still had five courses and a good range of wines (all listed in the programme reproduced on the following pages). Speeches were made on this occasion as on the previous one and were subsequently published in the March 1934 issue of the Periodical.

Navigate the pages by choosing from the drop-down menu above or clicking on 'Next'/'Prev' at the bottom of the page.
