DK Illustrated Oxford Dictionary - 0751311103

Most dictionaries seem lopsided--words, words, words! What about the right side of your ... more

brain? If you've ever been frustrated with a
written definition that didn't quite evoke the 
sweaty, dirty reality of its subject, the DK
Illustrated Oxford Dictionary should have a place 
on your reference shelf. Created by the image
wizards at Dorling Kindersley and the emperors of 
etymology at Oxford University Press, this
1,000-page tome contains 180,000 clear, up-to-date
 entries and more than 5,000 sharp colour pictures
that are perfect matches for the words they  seek
to explain.  Also valuable are the simple,
informative reference pages; physical and
political maps, calendars  and units of measure,
and rules of style all shine from the page with
the intensity of a laser (see  diagram, p457).
Whether you want a more intimate knowledge of
gearbox than "the casing that  encloses a set of
gears" or a visual awareness of the tiniest parts
of an insect's body--or even just  a high-quality
book of words--the DK Illustrated Oxford
Dictionary is the clear choice. --Rob Lightner,
