Just in (at least the Dictionary is):

Patrick Fairbairn Collection (9 vols.)

The Imperial Bible Dictionary (2 vols.)

"A classic resource for Reformed perspectives on historical, geographical, and doctrinal terms from the Bible."

Also includes articles by William Arthur, Franz Delitzsch, George C. M. Douglas, John Eadie, William Milligan, and James G. Murphy

From the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography:

"A project long in preparation came to fruition under his editorship as the Imperial Bible Dictionary, to which he contributed many of the articles himself."

The sum up their biography:

"Fairbairn was a tall man of good humour, majestic presence, and robust constitution who managed to avoid the controversy and personal animosities that often went with the status of Free Church leader. His knowledge of German scholarship might easily have brought him under the suspicion of colleagues, but while his sympathies were liberal, his orthodoxy was never impugned."

Imperial Bible Dictionary cancelled due to 'the quality of materials available'.
