Pictorial Webster’s: A

I bought the Pictorial Webster’s dictionary at a bookstore called Pages in Manhattan Beach and I found it very inspiring and interesting, especially, as it is a pictorial dictionary it has some of the original nineteenth century illustrations. John M. Carrera was the responsible to put together this curious work of art.

I will post every letter of the english alphabet and the illustration that I find most interesting. Let’s start with letter A!
