Ask a question

The dictionary is in good to great condition. There are no bad odors, or missing pages on or in this book. There are a couple small tears down toward the bottom of the pages. The edges have some discoloration and wear. The book has some vintage wear and rub marks. The spine has a little bit of pull-away toward the top. There is type on the page edges and on the first page under the cover page. Even though we found no other marks in the book, it is possible there are some as we did not check every page.

Also, the pages inside this book are surprisingly fresh and tight. It does not look like this book has been used a lot.

The decorative possibilities for this book are many. It would look great in a personal library or on the end table of a study. The conversations from having this piece laying around could be many. When children pick up this book questions will follow.

The collector will appreciate this book for its great condition and wonderful content.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. The actual laying down or standing up of an item may change that size a little bit. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. However please note that after shipping we recommend all items be cleaned thoroughly before use. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you insure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***We do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished look.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The manufacture or year-it-was-made is an estimate based upon experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with a regular inside light. That being said, I am very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront. If you see a questionable mark that is not in the description on an item you are interested in please contact me.

***Please note that since we offer free shipping in the United States, the actual first Shipping costs incurred due to the transaction from the seller to the buyer will be deducted from any returned and/or refundable purchases with the exception of missing items, damages from shipping, listing, and/or condition errors, along with full compliance of Etsy return and refund standards. We are dedicated to our customers and always strive for your satisfaction.
