Fifteeen Thosand Useful Phrases

So, I was going through an old box of books and found a book called "Fifteen Thosand Useful Phrases" by Grenville Kleiser. It's actually a VERY cool book & It was published in 1917.

Interesting chapter names such as :
1. Useful Phrases
4. Impressive Phrases
5. Prepositional Phrases
8. Striking Similes

And you will learn fun phrases like:
bucolic cudgeling or useless fripperies
Touched with a bewildering and elusive beauty
Silence deep as death
Lest the requirements of courtesy be disregarded

I don't know what it is but I literally have been reading this book now for an hour and it's really just what the title says, a book of phrases.
