Did you know?

Tome comes from Greek tomos, meaning "section" or "roll of papyrus." The Greek is related to the verb temnein, "to cut"; in ancient times, long scrolls of papyrus were divided into sections. When tome was first used in English, it referred to a book that was a part of a multi-volume work or a major part of a single-volume book.
