Thumb-indexed edition

A hundred years of experience in dictionary publishing lies behind this edition of the famous Cassell's French Dictionary. After more than thirty impressions of the previous edition this entirely new dictionary has been compiled by a team of eminent linguists.

Reviewing the new dictionary The Times Educational Supplement said: "One handles this dictionary with the same pleasure that a craftsman feels when he finds that a tool, dulled and blunted by long use and passage of time, has come back sharpened and polished, refurbished and fit once more for long years of useful service. Everyone has his testing-points for a dictionary and the present reviewer, after submitting this one to the ordeal, awarded it a tentative full marks. Its minor defects pale into insignificance before the scholarly achievement of a work for which the publishers can rightly claim that it is ?the most authoritative, up-to-date and, within the limits of size, the most comprehensive French dictionary available."

From the Inside Flap:

Cassell's French Dictionary
A hundred years of experience in dictionary publishing lies behind this edition of the famous Cassell's French Dictionary. After more than thirty impressions of the previous edition this entirely new dictionary has been compiled by a team of four eminent linguists headed by Denis Girard, former Cultural Attach? at the French Embassy in London, and including Oliver Van Oss, former Head of the Modern Language Department at Eton. For the first time French-Canadian usage has been incorporated under the direction of Gaston Dulong, professor of French Philology at the Universit? Laval in Quebec, who has included local and regional words and phrases.
