OPINIONS ON THE MERITS OF THE WORK, “ As the work of a single man it is one of the wonders of literary industry. Every HAN WHO EVER OWNED AN ENGLISH BOOK, OR EVER MEANS TO OWN ONE, WILL FIND SOMETHING HERE TO HIS PURPOSE."-Atlantic Monthly.
“ Far superior to any other work of the kind in our language."-Lord Macaulay.
“All things considered, the most remarkable literary work ever executed by one man."-American Literary Gazette.
“ It may be safely said that it is the most valuable and comprehensive manual of english literature yet compiled.”—New York Evening Post.
"There seems to be no doubt that the book will be welcomed to innumerable reading beings." - Thomas Carlyle. * As a bibliographical work it is simply priceless."-New York Independent.
“We are proud that it is the work of an American. We earnestly recommend every reader, student and teacher, and, we had almost said, every patriotic citizen, to secure a copy of Allibone's Dictionary of Authors."--Boston Evening Transcript.
"A monument of unsparing industry, indefatigable research, sound and impartial judgment and critical acumen.”-Washington Irving.
“ These volumes are treasuries of English literature, without which no collection of books in our mother-tongue can be considered in any way satisfactory. They contain what can be possessed in no other way than by the ownership of whole libraries of books."-Philadelphia Ledger.
“ If the rest of the work is as ably executed as that embraced under the first three letters of the alphabet, it cannot fail to be an important contribution to English literature.'-W. H. Prescott.
“No dictionary of the authors of any language has ever before been undertaken on so grand a scale. For convenience and trustworthiness this work is probably not surpassed by any similar production in the whole range of modern literature. The author has erected a monument of literary industry of which the country has reason to be proud.”—New York Tribune.
“In the English names alone Mr. Allibone's Dictionary will be far more complete than any work of the kind published in the country.”—London Daily News.
Dr. William Smith, who is accorded to be one of the greatest compilers of the present age, has paid to the work of Mr. Allibone this generous tribute : "I have frequently consulted it, and have always found what I wanted. The information is given in that clear style and condensed form which is so important in a dictionary."
“Very important and very valuable."-Charles Dickens.
