Webster's 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language is my favorite dictionary for studying the bible (the unabridged Oxford English Dictionary is excellent also, but even the compact edition is cumbersome). Webster based his work extensively on the King James Version of the Bible, and he included many bible references in the definitions.

I ordered both the paperback and the hardcover editions with the intention of using the hardcover at home and the paperback while traveling. After comparing the two, I found myself using the compact edition almost exclusively. It was newly typeset which made it easier to read, abbreviations were spelled out which made it easier to understand, and I did not use the explanations of word origins that were omitted in the compact edition.

I've used the online version which is fine but some words do not show up. This is not compact in physical size but in font and format. I've uploaded four images on here that you can look at. Two months later I bought two more for my church who only uses the KJV A.V. bibles.

It's one thing to read about history; it's another to read what history-makers wrote themselves. Scholars in high school, college, or beyond, who like to read original historical documents from early America, should also have this early dictionary in order to get the original meaning of the words written by the makers of history.

A second benefit to owning this book is the surprising worldview held by our American predecessors that it opens to today's reader. Looking through the pages of this dictionary leads the reader to the inescapable conclusion that, in the early 1800's, the Christian faith was of paramount importance to most Americans.

Anyone interested in original meanings, or in a fuller vision of what America once was, should have this book as a reference.

Hmmm, how to begin. Compact Edition probably needs refinement on the description. Compact can have a lot of meanings. Compact here meant the introductory information was omitted. Open the book straight to the definitions. Compact also meant those words and definitions were size 8 (maybe smaller) font. Teeny Tiny print. I was kind of expecting compact to mean something I could stuff in my briefcase or book bag.

Today's dictionaries don't hold a candle to this one. I love the references to religion - upon which our Great Country was founded. Back then we all were proud of our religious heritage and speaking about it, living it, was completely "politically correct". We need to remember our faith that brought this country to its' peak - look where we are now that we have forgotten our heritage!

If you are a student of Christian biblical studies, this book is an absolute MUST as it gives you such a wonderful definition of words used back in the days when I believe people took more time and dedication to converse and care about each other in a sincere, ethical manner. In this world of such hustle and bustle, I find myself being more thoughtful about how I convey my thoughts and emotions, keeping in mind how each word was originally derived and used. By beholding you can truly be changed. Enjoy!
