A little while ago my Mum and Dad did a bit of a clean out of their rather large book collection. I hit the jackpot when I saw that Dad was getting rid of his ye olde 'Funk & Wagnalls Standard Dictionary'. The 1958 dictionary weighs a ton, but it's glorious. The pages are yellowed and it has that old book smell. It even has little finger grooves so you can open each section more easily, and to top it off, it has the most awesome image pages. There aren't many, but they are lovely. Thank you Daddy.
