"command" help page

$ help command | grep -i -- -v
      -v    print a description of COMMAND similar to the `type' builtin
      -V    print a more verbose description of each COMMAND
$ command -v cat
$ type cat
cat is /bin/cat
$ command -V cat
cat is /bin/cat

So it turns out -V is like type, not -v!

Also when you say "description" one expects something like:

$ man cat | col -b | grep -A 1 -i description
       Concatenate FILE(s) to standard output.
