4.0 out of 5 stars Collins beats OED any day
The Collins English Dictionary is marvelous. This 30th anniversay edition includes lots of biographical and geographical information - just what the avid cruciverbalist needs. The only thing missing are the tables of weights, measures, areas, and distance, and their conversions, and the elements and plant/animal genus info. However there is a section relating to the most...

1.0 out of 5 stars I was very dissatisfied with this purchase. The price printed on the cover was two pounds less than the price I paid for it.
I made contact with the company which sent the book and and had very good dealings with them - including a telephone conversation, I think there has been strange goings on because the company which Amazon said supplied the book was not the company which sent it. I do object to paying more than the price printed on the goods. Nor was the book the edition I had hoped for...

This review is from: Collins English Dictionary: 30th Anniversary Edition (Dictionary) (Hardcover)
Lovely dictionary. Really comprehensive and easy to read with each word highlighted in blue. Bigger than I expected will need a wider bookshelf to accommodate it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing pages!, 30 Nov 2010
By 
This review is from: Collins English Dictionary: 30th Anniversary Edition (Dictionary) (Hardcover)
As reported by another reviewer, my copy was also missing pages (657-704). Even though I only discovered this about one year after purchase, Amazon reimbursed me in full. Thanks Amazon! Otherwise a 110% dictionary. Very well arranged and the font is "easy on the eye". Will try my luck with a repeat purchase.

3.0 out of 5 stars NO o's!, 24 Nov 2010
This review is from: Collins English Dictionary: 30th Anniversary Edition (Dictionary) (Hardcover)
I ordered this dictionary as a leaving present for a colleague - how embarassing when he told me later, that the sections for words beginning with N and O were missing! However, it looks to be a nice quality book, so as the returning process is so easy with Amazon - I am tentatively ordering again!
