Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary

The Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary is approximately 10"x7"x2". I like that the pages are indented and lettered to help you find the approximate place you want in the dictionary. The illustrations which accompany some of the entries are clear, instructive and helpful. Would like to see more of them actually. At the end of the dictionary are sections on geographical names and biographical names which I also like. The comprehensive index directs one to many valuable entries, like the Beaufort scale and ship's bells, chemistry signs and symbols, computer signs and symbols, weights and measures, and the geologic time table, to name but a few. It's the kind of dictionary that's fun to just pick up and browse much to learn!

Bought one for myself and another as a Christmas gift for a puzzle fanatic. Great dictionary with new words and solid binding construction. Although the cover could be better than the paper one it is I gave it 5 stars because it's one of the best dictionaries around and the price is the lowest I found.
