on a price per pound basis, the best book ever bound! (possibly!)

I'm glad the inventory of difficult words is so limited, which makes carrying this book usually unnoticeable. This is as fun to read front to back as in shuffle mode. for the improvisational poet, have this handy when you walk out of the movie V for Vendetta.

Dictionary of Difficult Words

I do a lot of travelling and always bring books when I travel. I like to read literary novels and biographies. Quite often when I am reading period pieces, I come across words that are not commonly used and have always wanted a dictionary that I could slip into my bag. Most compact dictionaries do not include more difficult words and I certainly don't need one that defines commonly used words so this is a perfect one to travel with. The last word I looked up was "pinchbeck"!!

Most Useful Dictionary

I have a 1971 copy of this dictionary which I am still using. Why? It is compact, the size of a typical short paperback novel, but it has more entries then many of the very big, but not easily handled dictionaries. The author just uses very brief definitions which most of the time is all I need. The result is that I have consistently used this dictionary since 1971 leaving the big dictionaries on the shelf.
