Ultimate Visual Dictionary is a comprehensive, annotated visual dictionary of more than 33,000 commonly researched places and things, from the origins of the universe to modern technology.
Organized into 14 major sections including Animals, Rail and Road, Music, and more, each has its own table of contents, enabling readers to find a pictorial definition of an object without necessarily knowing its name in advance.
