About this Item

Seventh, last, and "best" (Lowndes) edition, edited and revised by John Kersey; folio, engraved frontispiece, 2 p.l. and unpaginated lexicon in double column; extremities worn, bottom spine panel restored, endpapers renewed, but still a nice copy in contemporary full paneled calf, gilt-lettered direct on spine. Edward Phillips (1630-?1696) was the son of John Milton's only sister, Ann. The original edition of his dictionary was first published in 1658. Kersey's edition of Phillips was first published in 1706 of which this is a reprint. His revision was "so thoroughgoing as to produce what must be regarded as a new dictionary" (Starnes & Noyes). Alston V, 62; Kennedy 6210. Bookseller Inventory # 48629
