Bibliophile price: £10.00
A self-educated mill worker, William Collins published his first book in 1819 and founded a flourishing publishing house still alive today, HarperCollins. In 1971 lexicographer Colin Smith set a new standard for bilingual dictionaries with the Collins Spanish Dictionary. This was followed with dictionaries for French in 1978 and German in 1980, pioneering in their use of corpus resources to ensure even greater accuracy and provide thousands of examples of real language. The Open University set book, we have this bestselling bilingual dictionary in colour and you will need muscles to lift it. 310,000 references, colour maps of the English and French speaking worlds, 500,000 translations, alphabet tabs, specialist vocabulary, key phrases, idioms, pronunciation, and set grammatical structures are highlighted to help you understand more complex entries. New culture boxes explain the origins of phrases from literature, film and popular culture, and there are hundreds of examples in real life contexts such as essay writing, email and telephone conversations to help you use French fluently and naturally.
