Subject: [BKARTS] OED (mini)


many years ago, i remember seeing the oxford english dictionary
condensed into a 2-volume set. as you can imagine the text was very very
very small, and so a very strong magnifying glass (essentially a glass
sphere cut in half ) was included.
   
  has anyone seen this, and if so, does anyone know where one could buy
such a wonderful thing?
