  "As perfect a compendium of useful knowledge in connection with
  Literature, Science, and the Arts, as it is necessary everybody

pronunciation of every word at a glance, without having to stop to
think, or being in any danger of mistake. While the insertion of
the pronunciation constitutes a leading feature in this Dictionary,

to make it as practically useful as possible to persons of all
classes. Also to be had in Numbers at 3d., and Parts at 1s. Cases
