    THE illustrations form a noteworthy characteristic of this dictionary; for, as the title-page states, there are coloured plates, monotones, duograph charts and maps. The dictionary proper is preceded by a number of articles by well-known writers designed to promote the intelligent use of the volume; and at the end of the book are many useful and interesting addenda. The type of the dictionary itself is excellent, making reference to it easy and pleasant. With readers indifferent to the price of books the dictionary is likely to become popular, for it is not only trustworthy and exhaustive, but its handsome appearance will make it an ornament to the library table.
