Messrs. CASSELL & COMPANY beg to announce that oi
JANUARY 25th, 1884, they will publish the
FIRST MONTHLY PART, price ls., of
An entirely New and Exhaustive Work of Reference to e
the Words in the English Language, with a Full Accou. .
“As its title shows, it is professedly both an encyclopaeilint and a dictionary ; it explains things as well as words, and thus the autbor has ample scope to produce a work of immense utility. The author has had the assistance of specialists in the technical part of the work, and the authorities he has obtained to assist him have almost always been the best obtainable. The illustrations are always appropriate and clear."--Times.
"It is easy to see that the 'Encyclopædic Dictionary' will be without a parallel, and cannot fail to occupy a field of extensive usefulness. ... The illustrations are really very fine. Altogether, even in these days of cyclopædias, this latest publication of the Messrs. Cassell deserves to be hailed as a magnum opus.”_Liverpool Mercury.
“For fulness, accuracy of definition, exce lence of arrangement, and a happy choice PT OF illustrative quotations, the 'Encyclopædi Dictionary' need not fear comparison witi any rival that has yet appeared; and iti brief but comprehensive encyclopædic article will often obviate the necessity of searching more pretentious and elaborate works." Scotsman.
“A stupendous undertaking. The labour which must have been bestowed upon it is something astounding. Heraldry, architecture, logic, manufactures, music, philosophy, botany, chemistry, and zoology, all figure in its pages; while the student who takes a purely literary interest in the language will find his requirements no less carefully attended to than those of the specialist.”.- John Bull.
N.B.- This Il'ork will form a complete Dictionary of the English Language, giving the etymology of each word, and its proper pronunciation, its definition, and its various significations. In addition to this, special subjeits will be treated in the exhaustive form more s'ecially characteristic of an Encyclopædia. The present ll'ork will contain a large number of words not included in any other English Dictionary, while the definitions given and the examples quoted are the result of original research and independent study.
... Full detailed Prospectuses of THE ENCYCLOPÆDIC DICTIONARY can be obtained from all Booksellers, or will be forwarded post free on application to the Publishers.
