This vintage hardcover book The Charlie Brown Dictionary by Charles M. Schulz has over 580 pictures in full color, 2400 words defined, based on The Rainbow Dictionary by Wendell W. Wright, Dean of the School of Education, Indiana University. This is the first printing, 1973. The Rainbow Dictionary it's based on is a classic from 1947.
It's charming with the Peanuts gang doing things that illustrate words, and the text helps the reader understand the meaning of the word in several ways.
For instance: "above Linus is standing above Lucy. Linus is standing over Lucy. He is higher that she is." The illustration shows Linus standing on the back of the chair (much like a vulture) where Lucy is reading a book.
It's a big and heavy hardcover book at 11 3/8 inches by 8 3/8 inches by 1 1/4 inches with 400 colorful pages.
