I am ashamed to admit that I do not own a copy of Barnhart and Metcalf's
"America in So Many Words."  I am trying to get hold of their list of
"words of the year" for the pre-1900 words (I already have the
20th-century ones from the Web).  Can anyone point me to an online source
listing the pre-1900 words, or would anyone be able to post the list of
pre-1900 words to ADS-L?
