  1. Modern, recent.
    • 1963, Margery Allingham, chapter 17, in The China Governess[1]:
      The face which emerged was not reassuring. […]. He was not a mongol but there was a deficiency of a sort there, and it was not made more pretty by a latter-day hair cut which involved eccentrically long elf-locks and oiled black curls.
    He thinks of himself as a latter-day knight errant, out on a quest, fighting dragons [] It's not very practical but it is romantic.
