The Century dictionary: an encyclopedic lexicon - Whitney, William Dwight - 1913. [1271258]
The Century Co, New York. Hardcover. 24 parts complete. A lovely printed important Dictionary. "The Century Dictionary was admired for the quality of its entries, the craftsmanship in its design, typography, and binding, and its excellent illustrations. It has been used as an information source for the makers of many later dictionaries, including editors of the Oxford English Dictionary, who cited it over 2,000 times in the first edition. In 1913, Stewart Archer Steger from the University of Virginia published his Ph.D. dissertation "American Dictionaries" and devoted a 14-page Chapter VI to Century Dictionary. He concluded the chapter with these words: "Altogether, The Century Dictionary far surpasses anything in American lexicography." Some spines glued, spines are darkened, else a very good complete set in the first edition in parts. * 24 parts complete. . Very Good. 1889.
