Funk & Wagnalls Concise Standard Dictionary

£19.99

Product description

Funk & Wagnalls Concise Standard Dictionary of the English Language is abridged from the Funk & Wagnalls New standard Dictionary of the English Language by James C. Fernald. It was revised by Frank H. Vizetelly and Charles Earle Funk. The book was originally copyrighted in 1913, but this edition is from 1945. It has 780 pictorial illustrations.

The boards and spine are covered in brown cloth. The front has the title at the top, with a decorated FW logo below and a decorated border around the edge - all in dark brown. The spine has the title written horizontally at the top and the logo beneath, with a border pattern at the cap and tail. The back board is plain. All of the corners, on both boards, are bumped and worn, the edges are shelf worn and the cap/tail of the spine are frayed. Indeed, the external joint is worn, especially on the back. The spine is very faded as is the title on the front. The binding is loose.

The endpaper attached to the board has been torn off at the top and seemingly cut with a knife. An inner endpaper has been torn out, although there is another in place - albeit creased and becoming detached. The title page is also creased. Various pages have dog ears, top and bottom, and those on the endpapers have flaked off. Pages 267-8 have 70mm creases. All of the page edges are a bit grubby and there are a couple of small ink spots on the fore edge. The page faces are reasonably clean.

The endpapers at the back are foxed and the hinge is torn in the middle, although it is still holding the board in place.
