The Macmillan Visual Dictionary is one of the most valuable reference tools available, the only dictionary to allow you to see what you are looking up and to look up what you are seeing. Now the Unabridged Compact Edition offers the portability and affordability of a paperback yet remains every bit as comprehensive and gloriously detailed as the original hardcover. Whether you are interested in the parts of a cathedral or the components of a space suit, this unique reference tool is as useful as it is inviting, as invaluable to learning as it is fun to browse.

From the Inside Flap:

The Macmillan Visual Dictionary Here is one of the most extraordinary and useful reference books ever published: the first comprehensive visual dictionary in full color. Covering 600 subjects, it identifies more than 25,000 terms by the use of thousands of detailed, accurate illustrations. You can use The Macmillan Visual Dictionary in many ways:

  • to find the correct term for something you can picture but not name (such as the whatchamacallit on the thingamajig);
  • to find out what something looks like when you know its name but can't picture it;
  • to build vocabulary;
  • to browse in wonder through a universe of information not available to you until now.
Astonishing in scope, The Macmillan Visual Dictionary identifies everything from the components of the human circulatory system to the various types of electrician's tools, from the parts of a train station to the different styles of furniture, from a bird's anatomy to a flower's physiology, from the interior of the Earth to the constellations in the sky. The book's twenty–eight chapters give exhaustive coverage of:
  • The Human Body
  • The Animal Kingdom
  • Music
  • Geography
  • Architecture
  • Sports and Games
  • The House
  • Symbols
  • and many other subject areas
An extended table of contents lists every illustration, and the thorough index lists every term depicted. The variety and abundance of illustrations and terminology make The Macmillan Visual Dictionary an indispensable work for both specialized research and everyday life.
