Brilliant book, awful binding,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Concise Dictionary of Middle English (Hardcover)
Review of the hardcover edition.
Concerning the contents this dictionary is absolutely brilliant. If you read ME you will want this wordhoard. It contains pretty much all ME words, is clearly set out and printed in an easy to read font. The contents deserve 5 stars - and you'll be glad you got this book.
Concerning the binding this is one massive con! Do not be fooled by the term "hardcover" - the book is glued, not sewn, and stuck into a hardcover by its endleaves. This product is not made to last, which, considering that it's a dictionary which by it's very nature is subject to frequent use, is totally out of order. The binding deserves 0 stars - and you'll regret getting this book.
Overall 2.5 stars.

I've been using my own copy regularly since 2009 and have had no trouble with the binding.
