Johnson’s Dictionary of the English Language, in Miniature. Nineteenth edition, improved.

  • Johnson, Samuel
  • London: Printed for Lackington & Co. 1823


SKU: 3987 Category: Tags: , ,


12mo, pp. [iv], 284 + frontispiece. Contemporary marbled sheep, spine divided by gilt rules, red roan label. Lightly toned and spotted. Extremities rubbed and a touch worn, joints cracked but hinges and flyleaves neatly renewed, an old repair to foot of spine.


One of numerous printings of a pocket or 'miniature' dictionary claiming descent from Johnson's magisterial work - though likely without any connection beyond his name and the visage on the frontispiece.
