Description: An informative and entertaining guide to important anniversaries for each day of the year.

Which U.S. Presidents were born on the Fourth of July? When did Alexander Graham Bell make the first telephone call? Catherine the Great, Jerome K. Jerome, Baron yon Richthofen, Bing Crosby, and Dr. Spock were all born on the same day of the year, but which? Columbus sailed the ocean blue in fourteen hundred and ninety-two -- but on what day did he set sail?

Compiler of the London Observer's weekly dates column, Cyril Leslie Beeching, here provides an informative and entertaining listing of important anniversaries for each day of the year. A Dictionary of Dates, New Edition reveals a remarkable number of coincidences, and records births and deaths of the famous as well as significant and unusual events in history. With the bonus of a chronology of world events from the earliest times to the present day, international coverage, and a full index, this is an invaluable reference book for anyone with an interest in history or just plain fascinating facts.

Thoroughly revised and updated for this new edition, A Dictionary of Dates, New Edition is an informative and entertaining guide to important anniversaries for each day of the year.
