There are 800 illustrations in this dictionary copyrighted in 1892, although it is handwritten on the inside cover with my great-uncle's signature and the date October 12, 1927 and the notation that "Miss Edy is my teacher." At that time he was a student at the School for the Deaf in Columbus, Ohio.
Interior pages are all tight and intact with a few scattered notations here and there. The front flyleaf is torn on one corner. Important to this school in particular is the guide to pronunciation, an essential topic for the deaf learning to speak. There is an appendix containing a pronouncing vocabulary of Biblical, classical, mythological, historical, and geographical proper names. Abridged from Webster's International Dictionary and published by the American Book Co., in Springfield, MA. Measures 5-1/2 inches by 7-1/2 with 530 pages.
