About the Author:

Merriam-Webster Inc. acquired the rights to revise and publish Noah Webster's dictionaries in 1843. Since then, Merriam-Webster has maintained an ongoing commitment to innovation, scholarship, and love of language. Today, the company continues as the leader in language reference, publishing a diverse array of print and electronic products, including the best-selling Merriam-Webster's Collegiate® Dictionary, Eleventh Edition. The company also publishes a full line of student references, bilingual dictionaries, and titles for English Language Learning.

From Booklist:

Merriam-Webster's version of a visual dictionary comes from the same team responsible for the Firefly Visual Dictionary (2000) and looks almost identical to that earlier work. The big change here is that "real dictionary definitions" have been added, so that when we are shown a labeled picture of an arcade or a bobsled, we can read a definition as well. Some 6,000 pieces of artwork and 20,000 terms are grouped under 17 general categories. DK's Visual Dictionary groups 30,000 terms under 14 headings and uses primarily photographs (6,000 of them) plus 1,000 illustrations. The DK dictionary has a more sumptuous look, but some of the entries, such as those for the densely labeled "Competition Motorcycles" and "A Ship of the Line," can be confusing. If a library has to choose, it's the difference between stilettos and sensible shoes. DK is sexier, but Merriam-Webster, with its clear illustrations and added definitions, is probably a better educational tool. Susan Awe
