Boston: Timothy Swann, 1819. 322 pages + 2 pages of Tables. Octavo, 7 x 4 1/4 inches. Contemporary calf with red leather spine label; binding lightly rubbed; head of spine chipped. (Item ID: 1961)


First edition by this prolific philologist and lexicographer. This copy is inscribed in ink "Presented by the Author to E. Pearson, 1820." This most likely is Eliphalet Pearson, a prominent educator, who was the first professor of sacred literature in Andover thological seminary starting in 1808. Worcester lived in Andover from 1817 through 1819.

A fine, clean copy, lacking the atlas.
