Nice little set but spoiled by the slipcase,
This review is from: Little Oxford Gift Box: Little Oxford Dictionary of Quotations; Little Oxford Dictionary of Proverbs (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a pretty little set, but it's annoying that it says 'Gift Box' in big letters on the back of the slipcase. It would have been better for this to have been printed on the packaging, so that when it was removed the slipcase was just patterned. It makes the set look a bit cheap - and the recipient may not want it sitting there, constantly advertising the fact that it was a present.
Still, the OED is so far ahead of other dictionaries in terms of quality that for casual use (ie not for a job or a degree) I'd have this little pair over most of the competition. Pleasingly up-to-date, too.
