Originally published in by the Reverend E. Cobham Brewer, it was aimed at the growing number of people who did not have a university education, but wanted to understand the origins of phrases and historical or literary allusions. The 'phrase' part of the title refers mainly to the explanation of various idioms and proverbs, while the 'fable' part might more accurately be labelled 'folklore' and ranges from classical mythology to relatively recent literature. On top of this, Brewer added notes on important historical figures and events, and other things which he thought would be of interest, such as Roman numerals. This work was published before January 1, , and is in the public domain worldwide because the author died at least years ago. This work is incomplete.

Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable

В ужасе от того, что ее ожидало, она направилась к кабинету шефа.

Но вам ее не найти. Севилья - город большой и очень обманчивый. - Я постараюсь.  - Вопрос национальной безопасности… - Если вам не повезет, - сказала Росио, бросив взгляд на пухлый конверт, выпирающий в кармане Беккера, - пожалуйста, заходите.

Беккер кивнул. Он, конечно, видел старинную мавританскую башню, но взбираться на нее не. - Алькасар. Беккер снова кивнул, вспомнив ночь, когда слушал гитару Пако де Лючии - фламенко под звездами в крепости XV века.
