Handbook of Contemporary Biography.

By Frederick Martin. London, 1870. Sm. 8vo.

Men of the Time : a Dictionary of Con-
temporaries. Eleventh edition. Revised by Thompson
Cooper. London, 1884. Sm. 8vo. A volume of
1168 pages should contain a fair representation of the
men of the day, and yet it is ludicrously incomplete.
The literary side is as much overdone as the scientific
side is neglected. This is not the place to make a list
of shortcomings, but it will probably astonish most
of our readers to learn that such eminent Men of the
Time as Sir Frederick Abel, Sir Frederick Bramwell,
and the late Dr. W. B Carpenter are not mentioned.
As this book has as a high reputation, the editor
should thoroughly revise it for a new edition.

Men of the Reign. A Biographical Dic-
tionary of Eminent Characters of both Sexes, who
have died during the reign of Queen Victoria. Edited
by T. Humphry Ward. (Uniform with " Men of the

The need of an authoritative list of Botanical
names must be frequently felt by a large number of
writers, those who have but little knowledge of the
science even more than Botanists themselves. The
following work will be found useful for this purpose,
but there is reason to hope that a much larger and
more exhaustive list will shortly be published, as Mr.
Daydon Jackson, Secretary of the Linnean Society, is,
we believe, now engaged upon such a work. ' ' No-

Dictionaries.

(English.) One of the most useful English
Dictionaries is the "Imperial Dictionary" by Ogilvie,



IO4 How to Form a Library.

which has been edited with great care by Charles
Annandale. 1 The vocabulary is very full, the ety-
mology is trustworthy, and the definitions are clear
and satisfactory. The engravings which are inter-
spersed with the text are excellent, and greatly add to
the utility of the Dictionary.

For years preparations have been made for a
Standard English Dictionary, and at last the work
has been commenced under the able editorship of Dr.
James A. H. Murray. In 1857, on the suggestion of
Archbishop Trench, the Philological Society undertook
the preparation of a Dictionary, " which by the com-
pleteness of its vocabulary, and by the application of
the historical method to the life and use of words,
might be worthy of the English language and ot
English scholarship." The late Mr. Herbert Coleridge
and Dr. Furnivall undertook the editorship, and a
large number of volunteers came forward to read
books and extract quotations. Mr. Coleridge died
in the midst of his work, and upon Dr. Furnivall
devolved the entire editorship in addition to his
other onerous duties as Secretary of the Philological
Society. He projected the admirable system of sub-
editing, which proved so successful. As the work
proceeded several of the most energetic and most

competent workers undertook to sub-edit the materials
already collected, each one taking a separate letter of the
alphabet. Some two million quotations were amassed,
but still the man was wanting who would devote his
life to forming the Dictionary from these materials.
In course of time Dr. Murray came forward, and in
1878 he prepared some specimens for submission to
the Delegates of the Clarendon Press, who agreed to
publish the Dictionary The first part was published
in 1884, and the second in 1885. l It is hoped that in
future it will be possible to issue a part every six
months. At present the alphabet is carried down to
Batten. This is one of the most magnificent pieces of
work that has ever been produced in any country, and
it is an honour to every one concerned. To the
Philological Society who conceived it, to Dr. Murray
and his staff who have devoted so much labour and
intellect to its production, and to the Clarendon
Press who have published it to the world. It is,
moreover, an honour to the country which now pos-
sesses a well-grounded hope of having, at no distant
day, the finest Historical Dictionary ever produced.

In this connection the Encyclopedic Dictionary^
now in course of publication by Messrs. Cassell,
should be mentioned as a valuable work.

Up to a few years ago it was impossible to
obtain any satisfactory etymological information on
English words from our Dictionaries. Mr. Hensleigh
Wedgwood partly removed this reproach by the
publication of his very valuable " Dictionary of
English Etymology" in I859, 1 but in this work Mr.
Wedgwood only dealt with a portion of the vocabulary.
Professor Skeat commenced the publication of
his indispensable "Etymological Dictionary of the
English Language" (Clarendon Press) in 1879, and
in 1884 he produced a second edition. In 1882 Pro-
fessor Skeat published "A Concise Etymological
Dictionary," which is something more than an abridg-
ment, and a book which should find a place in all
libraries of reference.

A Glossarial Index to the Printed English Litera-
ture of the Thirteenth Century. By H. Coleridge.
London, 1859. 8vo. This was one of the earliest
publications which grew out of the preparations for
the great Philological Society's Dictionary. Strat-
mann's Dictionary of the Old English Language
(third edition, Krefeld, 1878) is an indispensable
work. A new edition, prepared by Mr. H. Bradley,
is about to be issued by the Clarendon Press.

Of single volume Dictionaries, Mr. Hyde Clarke's

"New and Comprehensive Dictionary of the

English Language as spoken and written " in Weale's

Educational Series (price 3^. 6d.} is one of the most

valuable. I have time after time found words there
which I have searched for in vain in more important
looking Dictionaries. Mr. Clarke claims that he was
the first to raise the number of words registered in an
English Dictionary to 100,000.

The Rev. James Stormonth's ' * Dictionary of the
English Language, Pronouncing, Etymological, and
Explanatory,'' is a work of great value. It is so
well arranged and printed that it becomes a pleasure
to consult it.

Those who are interested in Dialects will require
all the special Dictionaries which have been pub-
lished, and these may be found in the Bibliography
now being compiled by the English Dialect Society,
but those who do not make this a special study will
be contented with "A Dictionary of Archaic and
Provincial Words, Obsolete Phrases, Proverbs, and
Ancient Customs, from the Fourteenth Century, by
J. O. Halliwell" (fifth edition, London, 1865, 2 vols.
8vo.), which is well-nigh indispensable to all. Nares's
Glossary (1822-46, new edition, by J. O. Halliwell
and T. Wright, 2 vols. 8vo. 1859) is also required
by those who make a study of Old English Literature.

The following is a short indication of some
of the most useful working Dictionaries :

Arabic. Lane.

Greek. Liddell & Scott's Greek-English Lexicon,
both in 4to. and in abridged form in square I2mo.



loS How to Form a Library.

Latin. The Clarendon Press publish a Latin
Dictionary founded on Andrews's edition of Freund,
and edited by C. T. Lewis and C. Short, which is of
great value. Smith's Dictionary, both the large
edition and the smaller one, and that of Riddle are good.

French. The Dictionaries of Fleming and Tibbins,
and Spiers, keep up their character, but for idioms the
International French and English Dictionary of
Hamilton and Legros is the best. For smaller
Dictionaries Cassell's is both cheap and good.
Bellows's Pocket Dictionary has obtained consider-
able fame, but those who use it need a good eyesight
on account of the smallness of the type. It is, how-
ever, beautifully printed. The Standard French
Dictionaries of that language alone are the noble
work of Littre and the excellent Dictionary of
Poitevin (2 vols. 4to.). For early French Godefroy's
elaborate work, which is now in progress, must be
consulted.

German. Fluegel'sGerman and English Dictionary
still holds its own, but Koehler's Dictionary is also
excellent. Hilpert's and Lucas's Dictionaries, both
good ones, are now out of print. Of Standard German
Dictionaries Grimm's great work is still in progress.
Sanders's Dictionary is also of great value.

Danish and Norwegian. The Dictionary by Ferrall,
Repp, Rosing and Larsen is good.

Dutch. Calisch (2 vols. Svo. 1875).

Hebrew. Fuerst, Gesenius.

Icelandic. Vigfusson.
