Book Description

2 Oct 2006 Dictionary

'It's the most human of dictionaries, the most quirky and eccentric, the hardest to put down once picked up' Philip Pullman

'Impeccable as a reference tool, Chambers is a delight to browse through' Jilly Cooper

The Chambers Dictionary remains the dictionary of choice for professional writers, puzzle and wordgame enthusiasts and everyone with a love of words.

The latest edition of the dictionary includes definitions of over 500 new words that have recently entered the language.

While the traditional Chambers virtues of being informative, witty and authoritative have been retained, the design and content have been updated to provide a clear and modern text for today's users.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Dictionary. Great Price. 4 Jan 2008
By Offline
Received the dictionary very quickly via Parcelforce delivery.

I bought this to accompany my 20 year old mini-dictionary, which had limited words.

It is fantastic quality. The binding of the book is very impressive and the size of the book makes it very imposing. When put on the bookshelf, it is instantly striking.

At only £5.39 it is a very good price for such an expensive looking dictionary. Like others have said, it is £40 in Waterstones and has £40 printed on the back.

Extra features include a thumb index with gold reflective print of the letters of the thumb index tabs. It also has a red string page mark, which can come in handy for keeping track of where you are up to.

It has a dust jacket (dust cover) with an attractive picture and the hard cover will keep the book in use for many years.

Anyone who buys this will not be disappointed. 5 Stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a bargain 3 Jan 2008
By G. P
Verified Purchase
The Chambers is acknowledged to be the best one-volume dictionary in the English Language.

The standard version is on Amazon at £22.75, but this is the deluxe version, retailing at £40 in Waterstones.

At £5.39 it's an amazing bargain, so buy this one while you can.
