I bought the 18th edition of the original version at the same time, thanks to a couple of Christmas presents, as my previous one is somewhat dated and both are beautiful to look at and handle. They make a handsome pair and I know they will soon become indispensable.
My only quibble is that the binding is inadequate for such a weighty tome.
People say that Brewers is the best but for me there is too much emphasis on celebrities and not enough on actual phrasaes for me.
