Description: "A glorious medley....Almost without exception, all of its 748 entries are vivacious and stylish; there can be few books exceeding one thousand pages which are so consistently well written, instructive, and amusing."--Times Literary Supplement. "Many of the entries are surprisingly frank. Almost all seem definitive, two factors that make this reference work a continuing classic."--The Christian Science Monitor "For pure enjoyment, the prize goes to the latest, 1970s volume of theDNB."--The Observer Praise for earlier volumes: "As usual, the quality of the writing is exceptional....This is a splendid work."--Library Journal "The general standard is very high, and a substantial number are models of acuity and compression."--The Economist "The standard reference work for British figures of any note since the dawn of history....Famous and revered...theDNBis the most expansive, companionable, and entertaining 'authority' one can hope to meet, interested in everybody and eager to tell you all....One can hardly read any entry without learning something unexpected or unbelievable about people or history."--The American Scholar "The most amusing book in the language."--Leslie Stephen "The greatest literary monument of the Victorian age."-Lord Rosebury "An essential part of the writer's professional equipment. It is also a series of beguiling bedside books."--Evelyn Waugh "TheDNBcounts among the greatest and most interesting works of reference in the world."--Arnold Bennett
