About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for THE COMPACT EDITION OF THE OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY (Two Volumes).

Description:

The Limited Franklin Press edition of the 500th Anniversary Edition of the Oxford English Dictionary, initially issued by the Oxford University Press. Black, full leather binding with gold-stamped decoration and lettering on the covers and spine and with five raised bands on the spine. Pastedowns are black morie silk with a matching ribbon bookmark sewn-in. 4,0116 pages in two volumes with all text edges gilded. The complete text is reproduced micrographically, with four pages of the original edition reproduced on each page of this edition, requiring a magnifier for comfortable reading (sorry, magnifier not included). Leather boards of both volumes show normal shelfwear -- minor scratches and rubbing -- no significant flaws. Gilded text edges show a bit of scuffing; text itself is clean and unmarked; binding tight and square. A touch of class for anyone's library. [We're sorry, but due to the size and weight of these volumes, we can't accept expedited orders or orders from outside the U.S.] 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Oxford Univ. Press. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. 1979 reprint. 4,116pp. navy cloth 4tos: Good reference copies/not issued in dust jackets [navy cloth covers are mottled; fore edge of Vol. II has some large foxed smudge spots; a large bottom edge smudge; few turned page corners; text is untroubled; else complete & tight] This massive two-volume micrographic edition of the OED lacks the slipcase and hand magnifying lens (but itís a cheap lens anyway and can be easily replaced by a better one). This edition requires a hand or, better yet, lighted magnifying lens to be readable. A terrific compact edition for people with good eyes. Owing to the size of these volumes, priority mail or international shipment is impossible. Extra postage will be required for domestic media mail. Bookseller Inventory # 20318
