5.0 out of 5 stars Collins English Dictionary., 22 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Collins English Dictionary (Hardcover)
This was to replace a thirty year old Collins English Dictionary in poor condition, much loved but with pages falling out. let me start by saying this is a tome that does not disappoint, it certainly is a tour de force of some distinction. It boasts 130,000 entries, more than 200,000 definitions and impotantly for me a good scientific and technical vocabulary.

Its is not far short of 2000 pages thick and weighs-in at a hefty but not unwieldy 3.5kg. Its dimensions are 280mm high, 220mm broad and is 80mm wide.

Make room in your bookcase or on your bookshelf you will not be dissatisfied.

Despite being near Christmas and living in the Scottish Highlands the dictionary arrived on time. I would also like to point-out that Amazon is one of a few companies that does not add a large surcharge to the Highlands and Islands, for this we are very grateful.
