Dr. MURRAY, Editor of the Oxford English Dictionary,' says 'In this its latest form, and with its large Supplement and numerous appendices, it is a wonderful volume, which well maintains its ground against all rivals on its own lines. The 'definitions,' or more properly, explanations of meaning' in 'Webster' have always struck me as particularly terse and well-put; and it is hard to see how anything better could be done within the limits.'
Professor JOSEPH WRIGHT, M.A., Ph.D., D.C.L., LL.D., Editor of the English Dialect Dictionary,' says:- 'The new edition of "Webster's International Dictionary" is undoubtedly the most useful and reliable work of its kind in any country. No one who has not examined the work carefully would believe that such a vast amount of lexicographical information could possibly be found within so small a compass.'
Professor A. H. SAYCE, LL.D., D.D., says: 'It is indeed a marvellous work; it is difficult to conceive of a Dictionary more exhaustive and complete. Every. thing is in it--not only what we might expect to find in such a work, but also what few of us would ever have thought of looking for.'
Rev. JOSEPH WOOD, D.D., Head Master of Harrow, says :-'I have always thought very highly of its merits. Indeed, I consider it to be far the most accurate English Dictionary in existence, and much more reliable than the "Century." For daily and hourly reference, "Webster" seems to me unrivalled.'
