sale-work — “Nature's,” AS YOU LIKE IT, iii. 5. 43. “Those works that nature makes up carelessly and without exactness. The allusion is to the practice of mechanics, whose work bespoke is more elaborate than that which is made up for chance-customers, or to sell in quantities to retailers, which is called sale-work” (WARBURTON)
