My public library has an on-line subscription to the OED which takes up a lot less space and is updated without me having to do anything.
Arthur Ransome is not listed as one of the top 1000 sources of words in the dictionary. The first three individuals whose works are cited are William Shakespeare (2), Walter Scott (3) and Geoffrey Chaucer (7). The Times is the most cited source but has had the advntage of being around for a lot longer than any human lifetime.
