DICTIONARY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE in Which the Words are deduced from their Originals To Which are Prefixed a History of the Language and An English Grammar, London, W. Strahan for J. and P. Knapton, 1755, first edition, two volumes, large folio (16 -1/2 x 10 -1/4 inches; 412 x 254 mm.), unpaginated. Text in double columns with title-pages printed in red and black along with decorative woodcut tail-pieces. 1/2,000 copies. A most handsome rebound copy in full leather with raised spines and with professional repair to the fore edge corner tips as needed. The title page of volume 2 has been relaid down to promote the loss of the original bottom inch and the first page of text of this volume exhibits some modest wrinkling. All in all, a sumptuous copy with virtually no staining nor foxing and bright brilliant text.
