Where can I find a very old dictionary definition of a word?

I'm writing a story that takes place in the late 18th century, and there's a scene where a character is reading the definition of a word. Obviously, I need the definition to sound like it came out of a really old dictionary, not a modern one. I'm stumped... where can I find something like this?
