(not the greatest picture)
I am very happy with my purchase. I was amazed at comparing definitions from a modern dictionary to the 1828 dictionary. Here is an example for you:
The action or process of educating or of being educated; a stage of such a process; the knowledge and development resulting from an educational process; the field of study that deals mainly with methods of teaching and learning in schools. ~ modern dictionary (1980)
The bringing up, as of a child; instruction; formation of manners. Education comprehends all that series of instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations. To give children a good education in manners, arts and science, is important; to give them a religious education is indispensable; and an immense responsibility rests on parents and guardians who neglect these duties. ~ Webster Dictionary (1828)
Don't you just love the definition from the 1828 dictionary?!?!?
Here are a couple of websites of the 1828 dictionary: 1828-Dictionary and 1828.mschaffer Both of these sites have word of the day. The second site has comparisons that are very interesting. Enjoy the sites!
