Barry, you're not looking at the revised OED entry, you're looking
at OED2. The revised OED entry does have cites from 1858, 1904,
and 1927. If you look at the top right portion of the screen I'm
quite sure you'll see "SECOND EDITION 1989" there, with a button
labelled "LATER" that will bring you to the revised OED.
