This is a pre 1828 Webster American dictionary. It is missing it's title page and we have not found it's exact year. It has Webster's Dictionary on spine and first pages are the preface. In the preface,it states that The Compendious dictionary that Webster published the last year is too expensive for common schools.it was published in 1806.This edition has 30,000 words and is a pocket size. It measures 5 1/2 by 5 inches and it has leather boards. There is criticism of Johnson's dictionary also in the preface. The book has 366 pages and on the bottom of some pages there is numbering up to 31. The book has some light wear on boards and besides missing the title page is nice with some mild yellowing. Nice book.
If someone knows the print year, please let me know.
