Antique Webster’s Dictionary 1853 Unabridged Leather Bound Tiffany & Co Merriam
Up for sale is an antique Webster’s Dictionary from 1853. It’s a great Leather bound version of the original 1840 1st edition Dictionary by Webster. The pages are a little faded from time and age.
The leather cover has minor scratches and scuffs. The paper is faded and a little darkened from age. And there are some staining of the pages because somebody was using it to dry flowers. I would say about 12 – pages still have flowers in them. The binding looks amazing and is very strong. The corners of the leather cover have considerable wear, but I would say the book is in overall great condition considering age. This is a large 1 volume Dictionary with over 1400 pages.
It is 10 1/2” tall by 8 1/2” wide and almost 4 inches thick.
