By employing a small, yet clear and distinct type, space has been found to enrich its columns with many words of daily use, found in no other similar work extant. The editors have studiously endeavoured to translate our examples and proverbs, not in a literal manner, but by their real equivalents, and to render our definitions concise, clear, and true. The Dictionary is preceded by a chapter on the pronunciation of the French language, and appended is a Table of Irregular and Defective Verbs, which the student will find of considerable assistance. No pains have been spared to make this work perfect.
