London: Crosby Lockwood and Son, 1911. Ex–Library Fourth Impression. Hardcover. Quarto. viii, 1259pp. Bound in black cloth with gilt lettering on cover. Decorative endpapers. "In preparation of the work now offered to the public I have availed myself of the labours of my predecessors (Forbes, Bate, Fallon). I can affirm, however, with confidence, that I have not followed them blindly. I believe the work will be found to be something more than a "mere compilation": that, in fact, as regards both matter and form, it will be allowed to have some claim to originality; and that the changes introduced, and the additions made to the vocabulary, are so numerous and extensive that it may justly claim to be considered as substantially a new work." (Author). Dictionary supplemented with thousands of new words and phrases, additional meanings of words, and living colloquial language. Contains tables showing the correspondence of the vowels in the Persian, Roman, and Devanágarí characters, and the agreement of the consonants, Persian, Roman and Devanágarí. Binding with library barcode and sicker, light wear along edges, and a bit rubbed. Two variant library plates on inside front endpapers, library sicker and numeric stamp on inside back cover. Library stamps on top and bottom edges. Binding and interior in overall very good condition. vg. Item #44511
