The necessity for a second edition of this dictionary inside of eleven months is sufficient evidence to show the popularity with which it was received on its first appearance. The general arrangement of the words and their definitions is very satisfactory and the use of thin Oxford Bible paper and flexible covers has made it possible to produce a word book, full and complete enough for all ordinary use and yet so compact that it is but little larger than the ordinary abridged dictionary. For everyday use it is the most satisfactory of any published.
