Generously illustrated with B&W in-text illustrations and maps. Sir William Smith (1813 – 1893) was an English lexicographer. He was known for his advances in the teaching of Greek and Latin in schools. Perhaps the most important of the books Smith edited were those that dealt with ecclesiastical subjects. These were the Dictionary of the Bible (1860–1865); the Dictionary of Christian Antiquities (1875–1880), undertaken in collaboration with Archdeacon Samuel Cheetham; and the Dictionary of Christian Biography (1877–1887), jointly with Henry Wace. This condensation of his "Dictionary of the Bible" was made by William Aldis Wright, M.A., Librarian of Trinity College, Cambridge, under the direction and superintendence of Professor Smith. .
