Webster, Noah
NEW YORK: Merriam-Webster, 1961. Second Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine in Dustjacket.

Not for the non-musculuar of brain or body, and not for the pennypincher, this book is offered at a very dear price, mainly because we don't really want to partwith it.

Tan Library cloth-over-boards, red and green marbled edges, tab indexed of bright gilt on black. Contains 600,000 Entries; 12,000 Terms Illustrated; 13,000 Geogra … [Click Below for Full Description]
