Rare Rebound Chambers English Dictionary 1898 Edition

Beautifully, professionally rebound in Black Leather this is the Second Edition of the Chambers English Dictionary, published in 1898. All pages are intact and in excellent condition, although due to age we would caution handling the pages carefully. US or International Shipping Fees will be added to buyers final invoice. We will combine shipping for multiple purchases. See photos for condition of page edges, pages do show signs of age in their colouring, however there are no rips or tears. The Chambers Dictionary (TCD) was first published by William and Robert Chambers Chambers's English Dictionary in 1872. It was an expanded version of Chambers's Etymological Dictionary of 1867, compiled by James Donald. This second edition came out in 1898. TCD is widely used by British crossword solvers and setters, and by Scrabble players (though it is no longer the official Scrabble dictionary). It contains many more dialectical,archaic, unconventional and eccentric words than its rivals, and is noted for its occasional wryly humorous definitions. Examples of such definitions include those for eclair ("a cake, long in shape but short in duration") and middle-aged ("between youth and old age, variously reckoned to suit the reckoner"). These jocular definitions remained in the dictionary's later publications until 1970 when it was removed (later to be reinstated after public outcry!).
