By Francisco M. Carriscondo Esquivel

De este modo, de lo common a lo specific, y combinando erudición y divulgación, el autor de esta monografía describe los angeles personalidad de los lexicógrafos, el ambiente en que trabajan, los principales problemas a que deben enfrentarse… y los aplica a los hitos de l. a. historia de los diccionarios de lengua española del siglo XVIII, como son el Diccionario de autoridades (1726-39) de los angeles recién creada por entonces genuine Academia Española y el Diccionario castellano con las voces de ciencias y artes (1786-88) de Esteban de Terreros y Pando. El análisis de estos autores y de sus obras sirve para mostrar cómo representan, mejor que nadie y que nada, l. a. psique de los lexicógrafos y l. a. monumentalidad de sus producciones, modelos para una cultura que siempre tiene su razón de ser en un idioma y al libro, en este caso el diccionario, como su depositaria.
