A Dictionary of Palindromes
by Stephen J. Chism

First published in 1992, this was Word Ways' all-time best-selling monograph.  Now somewhat dated, due to the explosion of palindrome creation in other print works and on the internet, it is nonetheless of historical interest as an attempt to compile all of the then-known palindromes in the English language.

Price: $15 including shipping.  Computer disk format only (MS Word).
