About this Item: Oxford at Clarendon Press, 1888. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. [21 volume set in fine uniform Oxford bindings.] 10 volumes bound in 21 (includes 1933 Supplement). Quartos, 33.9 x 27.5 cm. A gorgeous binding. Bound in 3/4 morocco, over wine-colored boards. Gilt rule. Spines with gilt lettering and golden Oxford seal. Very good bindings and covers. Light shelf wear. Top edges gilt. Deep burgundy-colored end pages. Printed 1888-1933. "THE FIRST EDITION OF THE GREATEST DICTIONARY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE, long accepted as one of the greatest feats of scholarship and publishing of its period. The need for a new English dictionary that would examine how the language had developed over the centuries was identified by the Philological Society of London in 1857. However, it was not until 1879 that agreement was reached with Oxford University Press for the production of a dictionary that would contain all English vocabulary from the Early Middle English period. It was to be edited by the indefatigable James Murray, and it was thought that this would take 10 years and that the results would encompass four volumes. These proved to be huge underestimates; the first fascicule appeared in 1884, taking the project only as far as "Ant", and it was nearly half a century before the Dictionary was complete. The New English Dictionary, as it was initially known, encompassed 400,000 words and revolutionised our understanding of English and its history." - Sotheby's, 2007.
