Vintage/antique French-english Dictionary 1846 For Sale
Offered is an English-French Dictionary published in Paris in 1846!!
The dictionary has a dark green embossed cover and the name of the original owner "Adolphe Carlin" on the title page and the Preface page. All pages are intact and are in very good condition: no tears, writing on the pages (other that the owner's signature), no foxing or folds/creases. The only defects worth mentioning are:
1) wear around the edges of the cover particularly the corners and 2) some chipping of the leather at the base of the leather spine. (see scan mages) The binding is however tight and strong and the minor defects can be expected in a binding that is over 150 years old. A great book for a French teacher or student. I have had it on my shelf for many years and hope it will now find a good new home. Good luck in offerding.
