comment Can someone tell me the origin of the phrase “spitting image”?
@RegDwigh—ā I definitely can appreciate that you think this is a duplicate question. However, his question asks which phrase is correct whereas mine is looking for the origin of only one phrase, that being "spitting image". From reading all the responses and linked references, it looks like the original reference was "spit and image" no matter the crudeness, it does appear to be accurate. I appreciate you unflagging for being a duplicate. Thanks!

I see the reference that he put in italics...please read a little closer...you should also undo your downvote.

This looks like the frontrunner...I will let the question set for a day or two and see what we get but, it looks like @Jim found THE authority on the topic, Mr. Laurence Horn.
