SPECIMEN OF AN ETYMOLOGICAL DICTIONARY ATTRIBUTED TO JOHN...
by Kemble, John.
Limited to 100 copies. Kemble was the foremost philologist of his day, and this text is taken from the recently discovered eight-page manuscript which was dated 1830, three years before his edition of Beowulf. No trace of the actual dictionary itself is known, but this specimen is a fitting tribute to Kemble's work in etymology. Printed by hand under the direction of Gerald Lange in two colors on handmade Umbria Bianco paper by Emily Mason Strayer of the Kutenai Press. Photographic facsimile of the original text tipped in. An example of fine American book production.
