"Wight, Isle of, an island off Hants, bounded on the N by the Solent, on the other sides by the English Channel. Its outline is irregularly rhomboidal, and has been compared to that of a turbot and to that of a bird with expanded wings. Its length from E to W, from Bembridge Point to the Needles, is nearly 23 miles; its greatest breadth from N to S, from West Cowes to St Catherine's Point, is 13 3/4 miles; "
