The Compact Edition of the Oxford English Dictionary

£29.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The Compact Edition of the Oxford English Dictionary. Complete Text Reproduced Micrographically in 2 Volumes in slipcase with magnifier.

This item is in overall good condition given its age. The slipcase is intact but with some visible scuffs and scratches and a bit dusty. The dictionary volumes are in good condition with very little wear to the hard covers and the pages are very well aligned and undamaged. The spine of vol 1 is slightly softened at the top where someone has pulled it rather than using the plastic tab at the bottom. These volumes are large and heavy (8kg in total).
