My dictionary has arrived! Lots of packaging: a sort of large plastic, hessian like bag, the sort of bag they use in the office for collecting papers for recycling. Inside was a larger box and cushioned packaging. Inside of which was the slipcase containing the two leather bound volumes, A-M & N-Z. The slipcase was wrapped in shrinkwrap. I wish I had a camera with me to document the debris. I’ve already looked at several words, read the preface, and lovingly caressed the volumes. It should be noted that all drooling was at a distance in order not to mark the book. Yes, I looked up drool and followed a reference to drivel.
