Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »
The present edition of this famous dictionary has been reproduced by offset-lithography from the 140th Japanese edition, which was published in 1939. It includes 141,200 words, 33,000 compounds, and 46,500 examples. Although the choice of words was based on the Concise Oxford Dictionary and on Funk & Wagnalls Practical Standard Dictionary, many additional words as well as personal and geographical names were included.
