The Century Dictionary: an encyclopedic lexicon of the English Language. Revised and enlarged under the supertendence of Benjamin E. Smith

New York: The Century Co., 1911. Large 4to, 12 volumes, incuding the separately printed Atlas, and the volume of Proper Names; plates (some in color), illustrations in the text; text in triple column; full original beige cloth stamped in gilt; some light wear and spotting, but generally a very good, sound set. In 1882 Charles Annandale greatly enlarged Ogilvie's Imperial Dictionary (1850), which came to be the basis for The Century Dictionary, an American work modeled after the OED. Whitney, the well-known Sanskrit scholar and linguist, was its editor. "Beautifully printed...it is surely one of the handsomest dictionaries ever made" (Landau, Dictionaries, p. 72). Item #66312
