The article discusses the features of "Webster's New World Dictionary." The number of entries is not necessarily an indication of coverage, since presentations vary. Dictionaries A and C have one alphabetical listing and B has several. Dictionary A is bulkiest and heaviest and the type in C is only slightly smaller. The text type in B is smallest. Under letters "R" and "S," book C has twice as many illustrations and maps. B has fewest illustrations and no maps. The "College Edition" is based upon and includes material from "the Encyclopedic Edition."
