Originally published in 1879, this book is intended as a guide to the understanding of our popular scientific literature. Only the most commonly used, and most important words have accordingly been included. The fact that it has been found possible to include about 14,000 entries is the best evidence of the range and conciseness of this works. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
