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.
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.
