4to., 4 p.¿., viii, 57, [724] p., modern half calf. An interesting copy with the ownership signatures of Samuel Lediard and Henry A. [Ambrose] Lediard. Henry was the son of Samuel and the brother of Clara. Clara was the mother of Gustav Holst. There is also an ownership signature of Mr. Thompson. Appears to be the first English Dictionary after Samuel Johnson's where the author has followed his methods. Quite scarce. Courtney, p. 68; ESTC T114319. Full title reads: A NEW DICTIONARY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE : containing, not only the explanation of words, with their Orthography, Etymology, and Idiomatical Use in Writing; but likewise, their orthoepia or pronunciation in Speech, according to the present Practice of polished Speakers in the Metropolis; which is rendered obvious at Sight, in a Manner perfectly simple, and principally new. To which is prefixed, a rhetorical grammar; In which The Elements of Speech in general, and those of the English Tongue in particular are analyzed; and the Rudiments of Articulation, Pronunciation and Prosody intelligibly displayed.
