Description

Excerpt from Webster's Academic Dictionary: A Dictionary of the English Language Giving the Derivations, Pronunciations, Definitions and Synonyms of a Large Vocabulary of the Words in Common Use; With an Appendix Containing Various Useful Tables Abridged From Webster's International Dictionary

Although this edition of Webster's Academic Dictionary is an entirely new book abridged directly from Webster's International Dictionary, care has been taken to preserve in it the essential features of the former Webster's Academic Dictionary (originally prepared by Mr. William G. Webster and later revised by Mr. William A. Wheeler) which have made it a favorite as a comprehensive dictionary of small size and cost. The alterations consist chie?y in the increase of the amount of matter, the improvements in typography, the method of indicating pronunciation, the use of new and better illustrations (the number has been increased from 350 to over and other changes intended either to improve the appearance of the work, or to make it more serviceable, accurate, and complete.

The excellent typography of the International has been entirely adopted, and the page has been printed with two instead of three columns, which not only improves the appearance and promotes the facility of reference, but also gives room for the insertion of larger illustrations.
