Hardcover. Small volume measuring 2.5 x 3.5 x 1.25 inches. Brown cloth with gold stamping on spine over boards. There is no title or copyright page with dates. The preface to the volume, written by the editor Lyman Cobb, is dated March 31, 1834. Cobb’s Miniature dictionary was published several times between 1834 and the Civil War. Without the title page it’s not entirely clear which edition this is (except to note that that 1836 and 1851 editions had 811 pages and this one has 832 pages). After the preface is a section on “verbal distinctions,” followed by a dictionary which comprises most of the volume. What’s here is in good condition, if you can overlook the lack of a title page. There is rubbing to the boards and fading, with some loss in the fabric at the hinge or around corners. There is a split in the cloth at the front hinge measuring just over 2”. There are small spots of discoloration throughout the volume, but the text remains neat and legible. Boards firmly attached. Binding is square and tight. Some mild foxing. Short definitions, with maxims around the borders of every page. The editor, Cobb, printed an abridged version of Walker’s dictionary in the 1820’s - this is likely another version of that edition - which uses the British spellings of Musick, etc, rather than Webster’s Americanized spellings.
