Re: [BKARTS] OED (mini)



I have a copy of the two-volume OED, purchased around 1972 (copyright 1971) . It did not come with a lovely magnifier, unfortunately. Perhaps it was added at later editions. the glass that was provided is becoming more and more inadequate as the years go by...

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?
