5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to get into, but soooooo worth it!!!
OK, this may not be the most exciting book in the world, and it's hard at first to find your way around, due to the unique Victorian way it's arranged.
But it's worth the effort, as this arrangement means that you can find all sorts of alternatives that a normal A-Z thesaurus wouldn't provide you with. It's very useful, and also just fun. Some of the synonyms it...

1.0 out of 5 stars The book is fine, extensive
The book is fine, extensive, comprehensive and wide-ranging; if anything too big - if that can be a fault! This was bought as a 'Hard-Back' in good condition. It is in fair condition but is actually softback, again not really a problem, just not what I expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to get into, but soooooo worth it!!!, 5 Feb. 2002

OK, this may not be the most exciting book in the world, and it's hard at first to find your way around, due to the unique Victorian way it's arranged.
But it's worth the effort, as this arrangement means that you can find all sorts of alternatives that a normal A-Z thesaurus wouldn't provide you with. It's very useful, and also just fun. Some of the synonyms it provides seem a little unconnected, but that's half the fun, and if you read through the entire entry for one word, you can end up in a completely different place.
All in all, a great investment for anyone who loves words.

4.0 out of 5 stars This thesaurus is good, great, pleasing and marvelous., 9 Feb. 2001
This review is from: Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases (Hardcover)
Thesaurus' are by definition not the most exciting books on this planet. Betty Kirkpatrick however, has managed to produce a book that does its job eminently well. The book is very complete and well layed out. This thesaurus ranks up there with any good thesaurus and is a must for anybody who as a part of their work has to write large amounts of text. If you cannot think of the word you want then you will easily find it in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars ROGET'S THESAURUS. An indispensable book., 5 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases (Hardcover)
This is a beautiful book in its usefulness and appearance (hardback). Whether for everyday use or when writing a masterpiece you will never be short of words if you keep this book handy.

I still don't understand how it works,but I bought it for 1p ,yes one penny, plus very reasonable postage on Amazon. It arrived promptly and in near pristine condition.

I can't imagine how I ever coped without this book , if only for answers to those tough crossword clues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this, 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases (Hardcover)
I remember my grandmother's copy of this and adored it from childhood. It was invaluable to me throughout school and college and even though it's falling to bits I've still got that original copy.
I decided I needed one of my own that will last through my own children's school-years.
Comprehensive, easy to use and simply fantastic.

Accurate description. Very good condition indeed. A considerable improvement on my previous 1969 Edition given to me as a schoolgirl by my father.
