The most extensive Dictionary of Quotations yet supplied, and, thanks to
its arrangement and its Indexes to Authors and Words, it simplifies greatly
the task of reference."-Notes and Queries.

No book of English Quotations can be at all compared to the present, either
in fulness or in accuracy. If the succeeding volumes in any degree reach
the high level of excellence and of accuracy to be found in the present work;
Col. Dalbiac and his fellow-writer will have accomplished an invaluable work."
-Morning Post.

"A mine of curious inquiry. A very industrious and entertaining
companion.”-Spectator.

"Up to date and admirably explicit in the matter of references.”—Pall Mall
Gazette.

The quotations have been selected with excellent judgment, and they are
given with remarkable accuracy ; indeed, in all respects the book is the best of
the kind that I have seen.”—Truth.

Decidedly a work to possess." —Publishers' Circular.

"As near an approach to the ideal work as one might wish for."—Notting.
ham Express.

Remarkably comprehensive.”—Daily Telegraph.
An improvement upon Bartlett's and other well-known works.”—Times.

A very useful book, which will furnish valuable services to every teacher
and friend of English.—Anglia (translated).

The fulness and accuracy of its references make it worthy of a place in
every library where scholarship is valued.”-Scotsman.

" A work which must have entailed a vast amount of patient and intelligent
labour, and which, in addition to the intrinsic interest which it possesses, can-
not fail to be of service to a very wide section of the cultured public.”-Glasgow
Herald.

This Dictionary of Quotations is a distinct advance on all its predecessors,
in that it gives the fullest possible reference to chapter and verse for each quota-
tim." --Journal of Education.

“ An excellent collection in prose and verse. There is nothing superfluous
in the quotations ; there are few quotations unworthy of their place and really
obcionis omissions are few in number."-Yorkshire Post.

The result is a handsome volume of 528 pages, which will probably displace
many other and older compilations."- Educational Review.
