Cassell\'s Latin Dictionary: Latin-English, English-Latin

Cassell's Latin Dictionary: Latin-English, English-Latin[9780025225800]

Since its first appearance in 1854 and through many revisions this dictionary has remained constant in its appeal to scholars. As Head of the Classical Department at Eton College, D. P. Simpson was uniquely qualified to revise the work in the light of modern knowledge and he has introduced fresh material from a number of sources. In English idiom and Latin spelling he has followed present-day usages.

Incorporates modern English idiom and current Latin spelling. Includes general classical information where appropriate. Shows long and short vowels where not immediately apparent. Indicates irregular plural forms. Cites and quotes ancient classical authors. Suggests paraphrases to express modern English in classical Latin form.

"This new and revised Latin Dictionary is among the best of its kind, being reliable, compact and adequate for the needs of all save the specialist. He has produced what is in effect a new book, typographically easy to consult and combining elegance with utility".
