The Only Use of
The Devil and Tom Walker
Uses with a very rare meaning:
- He had also a great folio Bible on his counting-house desk, and would frequently be found reading it when people called on business; on such occasions he would lay his green spectacles in the book, to mark the place, while he turned round to drive some usurious bargain.†
(meaning too rare to warrant focus) The term spectacles is also used to refer to eyeglasses.
