Edited by Sommer, this detailed dictionary of "the secret language and jargon of criminals, gypsies and other scoundrels" is based on a book published in 1793 as August Ludwig Schotts Kurzes Juristisch-Practisches Worterbuch. The text of the 1793 title page, listing Scott as the compiler and Krafft as the editor, is on a leaf facing the title page. It suggests the book was published at an earlier date without Kraffts assistance, but we have not been able to locate any copies. It may have been a work that circulated in manuscript copies. Schott was a law professor and state official in Brandenburg, Sommer was a state official in Bavaria. We have not been able to locate any details about Krafft. OCLC locates 3 copies in North America (Cleveland Public Library, Michigan State University, Trinity College).
