Description:

Full title: AN AMERICAN DICTIONARY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE; EXHIBITING THE ORIGIN, ORTHOGRAPHY, PRONUNCIATION, AND DEFINITIONS OF WORDS BY NOAH WEBSTER, LL.D. ABRIDGED FROM THE QUARTO EDITION OF THE AUTHOR: TO WHICH ARE ADDED, A SYNOPSIS OF WORDS DIFFERENTLY PRONOUNCED BY DIFFERENT ORTHOEPISTS; AND WALKER'S KEY TO THE CLASSICAL PRONUNCIATION OF GREEK, LATIN, AND SCRIPTURE PROPER NAMES. REVISED EDITION; WITH AN APPENDIX, CONTAINING ALL THE ADDITIONAL WORDS IN THE LAST EDITION OF THE LARGER WORK. xxiv, 1079, [1] pages. Hardcover octavo: H 24.75cm x L 16.75cm. Original full brown calf leather binding, spine decorated with four fractionally raised horizontal bands each delineated over and under with thin horizontal gilt bars, light brown title label with gilt title lettering "Webster's Dictionary." Leather rubbed and stained with latter particularly prevalent to rear board; board corners bumped and worn; scuffing at spine ends and along front and rear joints; patches of surface abrasion and surface wrinkling along length of spine. Faint traces of marbling to text block edges which now are toned with small stains. Front free endpaper and at least one flyleaf removed so that title leaf is immediately opposite the front pastedown; rear free endpaper and perhaps one flyleaf removed as well; old colored pencil and regular pencil notations at top of front pastedown with scattered ink spotting; some and light staining to rear pastedown and the opposing flyleaf; light to faint moisture stains at margins of leaves as well as some light foxing. Pages 1009-1079 features "Walker's Key" which is iniatated by its own title page also with a White & Sheffield 1841 imprint but, instead of Sanderson as printer, it specifies "Stereotyped at the Boston Type and Stereotype Foundry."

TO WHICH ARE ADDED, TRADITIONAL VOCABULARIES OF HEBREW, GREEK, AND LATIN PROPER NAMES IN WHICH THE WORDS ARE ARRANGED ACCORDING TO THEIR FINAL SYLLABLES, AND CLASSED ACCORDING TO THEIR ACCENTS; BY WHICH THE GENERAL ANALOGY OF PRONUNCIATION MAY BE SEEN AT ONE VIEW, AND THE ACCENTUATION OF EACH WORD MORE EASILY REMEMBERED. BY JOHN WALKER, AUTHOR OF THE CRITICAL PRONOUNCING DICTIONARY, &C. Book concludes with promotional advertising text on unpaged verso of page 1079. A few scattered items laid-in among interior leaves. Binding is still firm. A fair copy of the standard mid-19th century American dictionary.
