7000 Words Often Mispronounced – With Supplement of 1400 Words, Phyfe. 1899
Wow… this is a fun book, and it surprisingly has proper names such as Katahdin and Kennebec in it. (Although back in 1899, Kennebec was apparently correctly pronounced with the accent on the final syllable, not the first!)
Condition: Fair. The binding is somewhat fragile with some breaks although it’s still intact. There are a few rips and tears, and a bit of staining. Otherwise, the book the covers are intact and it seems all of the pages are as well. See pictures above.
Price: $7.00 (plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax, of course).
NOTE: With the exception of nearly 14,000 books, plus maps & music (sheet music & vinyl), most of our antique and other inventory can now be found at the Undercover Antique Mall in Oxford. We are booth number 56.
We hope you will enjoy our revamped shop, as well as our booth in Oxford, as you did our original retail space on Main Street.
For those who’ve been waiting for the revamped Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps to re-open, we are still in the same building, but our new entrance is at the back of that building.
Just enter 9 Park Street, Lewiston into your GPS and park in the nearest available spot. Our entrance is through the door at the end of the building on the right hand side. You’ll see signs in the windows (“Retail Store” and “Heritage Collectibles” and “Antiques” as well as others; you’ll also see my silver Jeep Liberty parked nearby.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us since August of 2014!
In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially the section we called Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – that was his baby.
He loved me like crazy, and oh how I loved him.
Follow our blog at https://warrior-project.org, in honor of my husband, and all others who have been lost to internal demons that in the end, overwhelmed them.
All of the profits after expenses from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps will go to help fund The Grief Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed.
(Please Note: The Grief Warrior Project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those military personnel wounded after September 11, 2001. Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
