The Longest Book Title

The title of the book was called – Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases Classified and Arranged so as to Facilitate The Expression of Ideas and Assist in Literary Composition. It was Peter Mark Roget who authored the book. In numerology, the number twenty-two means – the master builder, dreams made manifest, ancient wisdom, realization, force of nature, the future, evolution, technology, universal love, personal power, charisma and service. They all reflected Dr. Peter Mark Roget’s personality.

Peter’s voracious thirst for knowledge and his appetite for work led him into many other fields, He played an important role in the establishment of the University of London; he was the founder of the Society for the Diffusion of Knowledge and wrote for it a series of popular manuals; he devised a slide rule and spent much time trying to perfect a calculating machine; he showed remarkable resourcefulness in inventing and solving chess problems and designed an inexpensive pocket chessboard. In 1828, he became the head of a commission to study the water supply of London, he issued a report that was the first of its kind; but, even though it graphically documented the simultaneous use of the Thames for sewage disposal and drinking water, the government took no action on its sound recommendations for pollution control.

Dr. Peter Mark Roget retired from professional life in 1840 and about 1848 he began preparing for publication the one work that was to perpetuate his memory. This was a catalog of words organized by its meanings. During his lifetime the work had twenty-eight printings from the year the “thesaurus” as Dr. Peter Mark Roget called it (from the Greek and Latin, meaning “treasury” or “storehouse”) was first printed in 1852; after Peter’s death – it was revised and expanded by his son –Dr. John Lewis Roget, and later by John’s son, Samuel Romilly Roget. Dr. Peter Mark Roget died at West Malvern on September 12, 1869, at the age of ninety.
