Hi everyone,

Does someone knows where in New York I can find a bookstore where they sell specialized dictionaries, like "Diccionario Enciclopedico de Terminos Tecnicos: Ingles - Espanol/Espanol - Ingles, by J.L. Collazo (April 1, 1997)"; or "Multilingual Dictionary of Aviation and Aeronautical Terminology in English - French - Spanish "Dictionnaire Complet de Terminologie de l'Aviation --- Diccionario. del Aeronautica, by Advisory Group Aerospace Research (Jan 1, 1984)"; or even "Spanish to English and English to Spanish Dictionary of Aviation Terminology : Termonologia Aeronautica Espanol - INgles y Ingles - Espanol, by Jorge Garcia de la Cuesta (Jan 1, 2003).

I hope someone can help me.

Lea Books Aug 4, 2008

Hi Cheryl,

Lea Books has a very important catalog of dictionaries. I once was looking for a specific dictionary and Lea Books was the only library that carried it; I ended up buying the dictionary from a colleague but I was impressed by the catalog and by how knowledgeable the owner was.

Here's the information:

Angel Capellán, Ph. D., President
LEA Book Distributors

Jamaica Hills, New York 11432, USA
Tel. 1(718) 291-9891 *** Fax.: 1(718) 291-9830
E-Mail Address:

I still have the catalog of dictionaries, if you send me your email, I can forward it to you.
