Full-Leather. Good. Decimoquarta Edicion. Ex-Library. Folio, 1080pp. Comprehensive, deluxe dictionary of Castilian Spanish produced by the Royal Spanish Academy as its 14th edition. This copy was once in the library of St. John's seminary in Camarillo, California, and after being de-accessioned was in the library of a private individual whose name is written on a blank endpaper. St. John's seminary is an important Catholic institution in Spanish influenced Southern California, and the late Estelle Doheny, a noted book collector, deposited her famous collection there many years ago. Her collection was later put up for sale in an auction that gained world-wide attention. It is not known if this large, impressive dictionary was part of that auction. The leather of this volume is well worn at the edges and joints, and the spine with four slightly raised bands is scuffed but with gilt titles still readable. Library tag was removed from bottom of spine, leaving trace but blending in quite well with the overall look of the spine. Hinges have been professionally reinforced with tape. Another tape mend to gutter following title page. Top right corner missing from title page, but no printed matter affected. Old library number written on title page, and embossed stamp of the seminary is at bottom of title page. Binding is tight and functional, and contents are nicely clean, though paper is browning a bit. There is a gutter separation between last page of preliminaries and first page of dictionary, which might call for another tape mending, though the strings are holding. When laid flat, which does not put stress on the binding, the break is not noticeable. This book is a great tool for the student of the Spanish language. Words of Arabic derivation show the original spellings in the Arabic alphabet. Please note price includes adjustment for overweight shipping. Book will be shipped media mail in U.S. Other shipping methods or shipping outside of U.S. would result in price adjustment at time of ordering. Bookseller Inventory # 837
