looks very old, and a lot of the references would never be used in modern Spanish life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very comprehensive! 16 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The Oxford-Duden Pictorial Spanish and English Dictionary is a must for any person who conducts business and personal events in both English and Spanish. As a manger in construction, I have found the listings for heavy, commercial and residental construction VERY helpful. Due to the detailed drawings, it is extremely easy to find not only the name of a specific item, but also the components of that item. It has even helped me find the correct word for objects in my native language!
I would be willing to pay more for the same book with a sturdier cover and binding. This book is going to get a lot of use! In addition to my book on 501 Spanish Verbs, I consider this pictorial dictionary worth it's weight in gold.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional wide coverage and translation of technical terms 4 Jan. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I found this book to be an excellent resource to help me understand and explain many different
technical terms used in engineering, construction, trades, crafts, art, and agricultural.
The numerous number illustrations have helped me explain these technical terms to nontechnical persons.

I have had difficulty keeping this book in my hands. Everytime, I get a copy, one of my friends
will buy it off of me before I get a chance to mark in it! I higly recommend this dictionary
to anyone who needs a good dictionary of technical terms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb reference 19 May 2002
By Eds Word - Published on Amazon.com
A great noun builder for intermediate to advanced students of Spanish (or Spanish-speaking students of English), this book will help you attain a degree of precision in your vocabulary that would be difficult to achieve any other way without a substantial investment of time. The dictionary is arranged by subject areas varying from the highly technical (e.g. precision instrument parts) to the everyday (e.g. tableware). About one-fourth of the volume is taken up by the index which is eminently helpful if you want to quickly find the translation of a particular word without having to wade through the many subject areas. The book identifies occasional word differences between Castillian Spanish and other idioms (e.g. Mexican Spanish) as well as between British and American English. Well-suited for browsing (a rare quality for a dictionary) and very different from most other language learning resources, consider this book a must-have for the serious language student or professional working abroad.

5.0 out of 5 stars A HANDAY AID FOR TRANSLATORS, TEACHERS, STUDENTS.... 10 Nov. 2006
By A. E. WATROUS - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
A clear, easy to use pictorial dictionary that comes in handily for anyone needing to connect the "verbal" with the "visual" ... My only wish would be for LARGER PICTURES WITH A BIT MORE DETAIL ... perhaps a larger, coffee-table size might be in the works?

5.0 out of 5 stars What a resource! 25 Feb. 2008
By Paddy - Published on Amazon.com
This dictionary was recommended by an instructor in my Spanish/English interpreter program. I have been a Spanish teacher for years and have used the basic Oxford picture dictionaries with my high school students, but was not aware there was a book of this level available. It is a fabulous resource for vocabulary on so many topics! It is easy to use, extremely well-organized and just amazing to see how many words there can be in categories I never even thought of (such as factory machinery.) I'm learning words for things I never knew in English either!
