Review quote

Review of Volume VII 'The Dictionary is now well established as a central source for details of careers and bibliographical information...The composite index at the end of each volume means that this series can be continued indefinitely, and anyone working in nineteenth- and twentieth-century British history must hope that it will be.' - Dr H.C.G. Matthew, English Historical Review
