The year 1876 marked the 100th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. It was also noted for a logological event of considerable interest, which has languished in obscurity all too long: the publication in London of William R. Cooper's landmark work, An Archaic Dictionary, from the Egyptian, Assyrian, and Etruscan Monuments and Papyri.
