Illustrated by above three thousand Engravings on Wood

The IMPERIAL DICTIONARY continues to maintain its established position as a standard lexicon of the English language, and as a work of the highest utility for the purposes of general reference and everyday requirement.

The four volumes comprise a total of over 3000 pages printed in a clear and beautiful type. Of modern terms relating to science, technology, and the arts, a full collection will be found, besides colloquialisms, provincialisms, Americanisms, and foreign words used by English writers. The discrimination of synonyms has been carefully attended to, while the etymology and pronunciation are based on the latest authorities.

As an Encyclopedic Dictionary the IMPERIAL combines the advantages of an ordinary dictionary with those of an encyclopedia. And as there are many objects and terms that mere words do not fully elucidate, the definitions in this dictionary are supplemented by upwards of 3000 accurate and beautiful wood engravings, besides a set of fine coloured plates. In 4 vols. imperial Svo. Roxburgh, £4 net; or half-morocco, £5 net.
