Concise Dictionary of Twenty-Six Languages in Simultaneous Translation

By Peter M Bergman

This book is in good condition. The cover boards have some wear on the front, Back and spine. The edges of the cover boards are also worn, and there is bumping on all corners of the cover boards. The pages are yellowed and tanned, but free of any markings. "The purpose of this dictionary is to simplify as much as possible and not to burden the reader with rules and exceptions of grammar, syntax, different word meaning and pronunciation.
