She insisted on buying me a wonderful Webster's 1958 unabridged dictionary...not for journal production but out of interest. Definitely not the pocket version!
At the Glenorchy outlet they obviously prize decrepit old books far higher, and one I found with minimal damage but nothing else to recommend it, (Polish language from the 1950's in new mathematics of all things), was priced at $30.00!
I have selected a strong ecru crochet thread which I hope will hold up to the task and found a long disused darning needle, so hope to have the task completed this evening...
Bye for now,
