Boston, MA.: Thomas & Andrews, West & Blake, Eben. Larkin, and John West & Co.. Very Good. N.D.. Early American Leather Binding. This dictionary is hard-bound in a simple yet elegant, early American leather binding, with blind tooling on the covers in the shape of an "X." The covers show some scuffing, light soiling, edge-wear, and rubbing to the corners and spine-ends. There is some old damp-staining to the covers and spine as well as a small gash/hole at the top of the upper cover. The upper hinge is cracked, with the front free end-page lacking, and with the binding still solid. The contents are bright and legible, but with some light scattered foxing and intermittent damp-staining. There is some brown staining to the center of the pages between 275 & 312. There are 2 leaves at the rear (pages 449-459 & 451-452) which are worn/torn with tape repair. The top, exterior edge of the pages has a previous owner name written, Cyrus Liscomb, Chatham (MA?) Written on the rear free end-page are the names Cyrus Liscomb, Charlotte Liscomb, Adam Liscomb, Frances Liscomb, John Liscomb, Charles Liscomb, and Roxanne Liscomb. Also written on the rear free end-page is Cyrus Liscomb, Morristown Circuit, Elmore Vermont, 1840. . (Inventory #: 76906)
