This is an old dictionary from 1935.
I'm pretty sure it has words in it that we don't use much anymore ~ like "meritorious"
And that's the reason I've decided to keep it.
It was for sale in my bookshop, but no one bought it, which surprised me because the patina of the book is so pretty.
It really is a gorgeous book. It's worthy of keeping. It's worthy of praise. It's meritorious, in fact.
