The Oxford English Dictionary (20 Volume Set) by John Simpson and Edmund S. Weiner
The Oxford English Dictionary (20 Volume Set)

cmkippcasati, January 19, 2012

Ultimate dictionary, dictionaries on the internet are a pale farce of this set of books. The internet has a limited set of meanings, thereby leaving a writer or researcher with access to small range in the usage and expression of the English language.

These books have stood the test of time, the internet has not provided anything to compare with them! The English language compiled at your fingertips!
