Smarten up your desk, literally!  

  • Lovely hardcover Winston Dictionary College Edition, copyright 1943.  It has beautiful full-color inserts (look up 'flower') and smells like the library at my summer camp.  Which is to say, musty.  But a good musty.  It also has those old school leather tabs for each letter.  And wait until you look up 'typography'.  OMG.  Seriously, this is a treasure.  It will make you despise dictionary.com.  (9" x 6.25")
  • The pencil holder is really a lidded pottery compote with a chic black glaze and even more chic white edge.  If you like, I will send you the six colored pencils too. (5.75"d x 4.5"h)
  • Wee owls are ready to fly, eager, wide-eyed, wings outstretched.  Like the first years at the University of Chicago.  (2"h x 2.5"w)

Shipping costs are included. Also, please note that everything I sell, and I mean everything, is used, antique, vintage, etc. That means sometimes scratched, dented, and worn. Imperfect. Not dusty, though. Or dirty.
