About the Author

Since 1937. Merriam-Webster is America's foremost publisher of language-related reference works. The company publishes a diverse array of print and electronic products, including Merriam-Webster's Collegiate® Dictionary, Eleventh Edition – America's best-selling desk dictionary – and Webster's Third New International Dictionary, Unabridged. Merriam-Webster can be considered the direct lexicographical heir of Noah Webster. In 1843, the company bought the rights to the 1841 edition of Webster's magnum opus, An American Dictionary of the English Language, Corrected and Enlarged. At the same time, they secured the rights to create revised editions of the work. Since that time, Merriam-Webster editors have carried forward Noah Webster's work, creating some of the most widely used and respected dictionaries and reference books in the world.

Every home needs to be equiped with certain items. A dictionary and thesaurus are two of those items. When looking to purchase these items I went with a name I trusted, Merriam Webster. I decided to purchase the complete set because I found it interesting that it included a vocabulary builder. My family and I choice a word a day from the informative books and use it as much as possible. We enjoy picking a word from the vocab builder, then looking it up in the dictionary. We use the thesaurus to find similar words, and words that mean the complete opposite. The choices are endless. I have yet heard a word that can not be found in one of the three books. Unlike most thesaurus' this version has almost every word. It was surprising, because often with thesaurus' the choices are limited. This is one problem that I have yet to run into. I plan to purchase a few copies for family members and friends that are graduating in this year. My fiance even mentioned that we need our own set when we get married.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Set Nov. 12 2001
Format:Paperback
I had a set similar to this years ago, which became dog-eared & yellowed with constant use. I replaced them with this 3-book set & the Vocabulary Builder is the best part of this set. My husband & I both love learning new words, so we'll often sit & quiz each other from this new set of books. I also use them as quick references in my writing and business ventures. The dictionary is great as an alternative to the official scrabble dictionary (when we get tired of the seemingly made up words that can't be found in any other dictionary). Maybe I'm just strange--I did read dictionaries & thesauruses for fun as a child & teen.
This set is an excellent value for the money & will be referred to & used again & again. No home or office should be without this reference set.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Reference Set that Wasn't Sept. 14 2010
By Tom Dolan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the simplest Review I've written for an amazon order. The Reference set is junk: poor quality paper, font barely larger than an average garden variety ant, printed so lightly I suspect you'll squint in the brightest light. Save your time and money. I'm lookin' at the Oxford combo-book which sells for less, printed on bright white paper in a large font using adequate ink enabling the text to stand out from the page.

As usual, delivery by amazon was terrific, now we'll see how they handle the return of the 'set' which I believe is the 1st time I've ever returned to them. I'm a committed amazon client/supporter and this has nothing to do with amazon and everything to do with Merriam-Webster.

Truly, for an old set of eyes, this Merriam-Webster set does not have acceptable print. I kept them but they are not for old eyes.

I ordered this box set because I'm a language enthusiast (apart from being a teacher and a student) and it was totally worth it!
Love the packaging and the colour combination as well!
It is perfect as a present or to have at home when needed!
AWESOME!
