If you had an opportunity to buy a 1939 edition of the Nouveau Petit Larousse Illustre, of course you'd jump at it, right?
I know I did. I don't know why, exactly, because my grasp of French is sketchy at best. But dictionaries are always fun and illustrated dictionaries are even better. This one sits quietly on my shelf of reference books until I need a little something to liven up a rainy evening.
