The synonymous, etymological, and pronouncing dictionary; in which the words are deduced from their originals, their part of speech distinguished, their pronunciation pointed out, and their synonyma collected, which are occasionally illustrated in their different significations, by examples from the best writers; extracted from the labors of the late Dr. Samuel Johnson; being an attempt to synonymise his folio Dictionary of the English Language. To which is prefixed an English Grammar
printed for John Walker [et al.], London, 1805. First and only edition, 8vo, pp. xlvii, [1], plus unpaginated lexicon in double column; contemporary tree calf; some rubbing and wear, but overall very good. Perry lifted much material from Johnson, including many of his definitions, citations, and a good part of his grammar. Fleeman does not consider this part of the Johnson canon, but it might just as well be; the Johnsonian, Gwin Kolb, for his part, catalogued it under Johnson. [Attributes: First Edition]
