Word of the Day: RAKESHAME

from rake (vb.) + shame (n.).; perhaps suggested by rake-hell

“…An vgly monster of men, with a face as grieslie as a Beare, came vnto him, accompanied with a traine of rakeshames…”

From: Honours Conquest: wherein is conteined the famous hystorie of Edward of Lancaster 
By Henry Roberts, 1598
