Hi!
I saw that you own a copy of the amazing "Webster's Encyclopedic Dictionary" Of The English Language (the one with the amazing tan leather-type cover. The one that's loose-leaf, bound with 3 studs.
I'm curious if you know the history, and I'm curious if you have had a copy of this book since 1957, when it was published?
I owned an original copy when it was first published. Did you?
It was one of my proudest possessions. It went "bye-bye" when I went into the military, and I've been trying to re-acquire one that's in one piece for the longest. I think I've finally found one on E-bay that's in one piece. I'm trying to have one for me, and one for my son and his family.
Have a great week, and thanks in advance for any reply!
