About this Item: Huntington & Savage and Mason & Law, New York, 1851. Hardcover. Condition: Poor. Disbound, covers detached, no spine, lacks front endpapers and preliminaries, title page has a hole, pages including title page are soiled and stained, otherwise complete. Copyrighted in 1848 by William W. Ellsworth and Henry White, executors of Noah Webster, deceased. The title page notes 10,00 more words than Walker's Dictionary. W. G. Webster's preface disparages Walker's, particularly his pronunciations. The book has a rich Western provenance as the detached rear cover carries the ownership inscription of John Martin, Aleman Ranch New Mexico San Augustine. In similar hand and ink on the rear free endpaper is written Sulphur Springs Vandergriff Vanderbit Mamfold (?) Doubtful Canyon. At the top of the page in pencil is written O. U (?) Spencer Sulphur Springs. In the 1860's John Martin, lieutenant of a California company of volunteers and homesteader of the Aleman Ranch on the Jornada del Muerto, drilled the first well in the area. The other names are mainly New Mexico place names. A scarce pre-Civil War dictionary for schools. Small, 24 mo. Most items ship with free delivery confirmation, electronic tracking and jacket protectors (generally over $10.00) if applicable. Clean recycled packing material will be used when possible.

About this Item: Boston. Wilkins, Carter, and Company, 1847. No Binding. Condition: Fair. Once a hardcover, now both boards are missing. Leather spine much scuffed and faded. lxxv + 956 pages. Text block tight and complete. Some normal toning to the page from ages and faded stains here and there. None are very significant - especially since we're dealing with a copy with no covers. Early ownership name on the second blank page, Calvin Gibson, in pen. Portland, Sept 1848 in pencil beneath. But it's a scarce dictionary and may well deserve a new binding. Please email with questions or to request photos. Seller Inventory # Fred6-2741

About this Item: William Collins, Sons, & Co., Limited, London, 1871. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 996 pages (complete). Rebound in full leather. The leathered boards are very smart, handsome, clubbable. Spine has five ridges (healthy). Stamped gilt titling (fresh). The contents are healthy and especially fascinating for a 21st century reader/user. The front pages have been well repaired. The title and early pages have some age and usage marks. A fascinating appendix of words new at the time but now of such common use as the origin to be forgotten! Such as: amyl, anode, assegai, baby-farming, bangle, chivey, chlorometer, Khedive, knobstick, methylated and so on! The pages are benevolent, bountiful, tight, hale, sturdy, sound, clean, clear, very certain and more than competent. A most agreeable book. fk. Seller Inventory # 92hq
