This new edition has been carefully prepared in a proprietary compact format : All of the words, definitions, and examples have been preserved, but the explanations of word origins have been omitted to save space, as has Webster's lengthy technical introduction. Scripture references have been standardized in modern format, and many abbreviations have been spelled out for greater understanding. The text has been newly typeset with Charter typeface, making the text highly readable in spite of its small size. --from publisher's preface
