  • Webster's Imabrodged Doctopmaru

    This one-volume, unabridged dictionary should be much easier to use than the usual several-volume unabridged dictionaries which are so commonly found but so cumbersome to handle. The cost was about half of the new price of the one I found at our local ****, and I want to buy one for myself. Any educated English speaking person should own this dictionary. Thank you for offering it.
