With thousands of intricate and colorful illustrations presented in a browser-friendly paperback format, the new compact edition of The Macmillan Visual Dictionary is an easily portable follow-up to the popular hardback version. The dictionary connects each phrasing, key word, or key words to a grouping of finely detailed and descriptive pictures, all formatted into a series of sections assembled in an easy-to-follow index at the beginning of the book. With a depth that includes 12 kinds of mushrooms and 4 types of billiards, the Visual Dictionary also manages to keep a wide enough focus so that most anyone interested in contemporary life will find a section or two to capture their eye and attention--whether they're painstakingly searching the book for help with a research paper, tracking down a contested fact, or peering through the many vivid drawings for pure pleasure.

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.
