"No language that we have ever studied, or attempted to study, possesses a Dictionary so rich in the history of words as this great work which M. Littré has fortunnately lived long enough to complete. To the love of order, system and clearness which belongs to the French mind, he has joined a degree of patience in research and scientific thoroughness in comparison, which we have been accustomed to associate with German rather than with French erudition. The courage which could undertake such a task as this might have been considered mere uncalculating rashness if the workman had not lived to complete his colossal performance.

"The entire work contains 4,708 pages, and M. Littré's Dictionary contains twice as much printed matter as the whole of the Waverly Novels, with a few thousands of novel-pages into the bargain.

"Mere bigness is, however, one of the least of its many claims to attention. M. Littré is not the first man who has made a big Dictionary, and we all know that in labors of this kind the author whose name is on the titlepage avails himself of the services of others. The wonder is that so vast an undertaking should have been carried through from beginning to end without the slightest hitch or flaw, and in perfect obedience to one great governing idea."-Saturday Review.
