12mo, pp. [iv], 284 + frontispiece. Gathering S misfolded and hence bound out of order. Modern quarter green calf, blue marbled boards, spine divided by raised bands, 2nd compartment lettered direct in gilt. Somewhat toned, frontispiece heavily so, lightly soiled, corners creased.


One of numerous printings of a pocket or 'miniature' dictionary claiming descent from Johnson's magisterial work - though likely without any connection beyond his name and the visage on the frontispiece.
