Glossographia Anglica Nova: Or, a Dictionary, Interpreting Such Hard Words of whatever Language, as are at present used in the English Tongue, with their Etymologies, Definitions, &c.
London: Printed for Dan. Brown, Tim. Goodwin, John Walthoe, M. Newborough, John Nicholso, Benj. Took, D. Midwinter, and Fran. Coggan , 1707. [viii] pages followed by about 600 un-numbered pages of text. Original leather binding with the spine lacking or detached, and the boards are heavily worn. Lacks the rear endpaper, which has caused the final few leaves to be stained along the edges. The front endpaper has two previous owner names or blindstamps. A few pages of text are soiled, but for the most part the text is clean and unmarked. This volume would greatly benefit from a rebacking or a rebinding, but it is quite attractive and is protected in custom-fitted stiff archival mylar. This is the first English dictionary to employ the extensive use of woodblocks for illustrations. Approximately the first third of the text has small wormholes to the bottom margin, sometimes affecting the text. First edition.. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good- condition. Octavo (8vo).
