The mother of all English Dictionaries and the one I was brought up on. Of course the OED was on my book-shelves, but Chambers was always the more appealing, less dry, source of lexicographic knowledge one reached out for on discovery of a previously unknown word. I do hope they have made this digital version as alluring as the paper volume as I'm still using the copy my Great Grandmother bought my Grandmother and which came to me via my mother in the 1960's.
