COMPRISING 14,000 IDIOMS, PROVERBS, MAXIMS
IN presenting this New Dictionary to subscribers and the public, the publishers desire to draw attention to one important respect in which it differs from its predecessor, "Deacon's Dictionary of Foreign Phrases." Although the price of the present work is only about double that of the former, it contains nearly ten times as much information. It forms, in fact, the largest collection of Quotations, Proverbs, etc., which has hitherto been brought together in a single volume.
