A new universal, etymological, technical, and pronouncing dictionary of the English language. Embracing all the terms used in art, science and literature.

London: published (for the proprietors) by Henry George Collins, 1849. First edition, 2 volumes, thick large 8vo, engraved titles and frontis, text in double column; a near fine copy in contemporary half black calf. A rather uninspired effort in spite of its having been based on Johnson and Walker; the etymologies are thin, the technical terms spotty, and the physical design ponderous. The author was the lecturer on geology in Anderson's University, Glasgow. Two other editions were published, the last in 1861-64. NUC locates five copies. Item #2002

Price: $275.00
