The Compact Edition of the Oxford English Dictionary, Two Volumes with Magnifying Glass

£35.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This is The Compact Editions of the Oxford English Dictionary, which contains the full text of the Oxford English Dictionary photographically reduced to fit into two volumes instead of up to 20 volumes for the conventional editions. It comes with its own Magnifying Glass. This edition by Book Club Associates was published in 1971.

These Two hardback Volumes come as a pair in a hard case with small box compartment on top that contains a Magnifying Glass.
The two Volumes are in very good condition due to being kept in a case and the pages inside are as new with clear, bright text. The hard case has minimal signs of the shelf wear with bumped edges and fading in colour. The Magnifying Glass shows signs of use with some small scuffs as to be expected.

This is a rare find and presented beautifully.
