Read full description of the books Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary:Alas and alack, I'm pining away over the demise of my thumb-worn tenth edition. Something in the way she lay--her clothbound boards downy to the fingers; her notches guiding my thumb to just the right recess; her intoxicating fragrance, inside, along the spine--attracts me like no other printing.
Alas and alack! She is put to rest.
A consumation devoutly to be wished for?
The eleventh edition, uncouth imitation of the tenth, feels hard to the touch and looks just as adamant, with its garish, glossy cardboard cover; its smell reeks of some olfactory battle between acrid and sour.
The updated contents, unfortunately, are a must for the type of editing I do.
Alas and alack!
