small disapointment, 2 Aug. 2009
I bought the shorter Oxford English Dictionary for a friend's 50th birthday after enjoying years of use of one at home. It's a tremendously good reference book to have and very good if you just meander through idly looking at words, one leads to another and then another listing the first usage as part of the definition. The really sad thing is that when he opened it the two volumes both had the same dust jackets for Marl-Z, when one should have been A-Markworthy. There is no easy way to contact amazon for a replacement dust jacket without posting the whole thing back and waiting for a new set to be sent. My friend decided to stick his own label on instead.
