E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.
De Trop (French).
Supererogatory, more than enough. Rien de trop, let nothing be in excess. Preserve in all things the golden mean. Also “one too many,” in the way; when a person’s presence is not wished for, that person is de trop.   1
