Since its first appearance in 1854, this dictionary has remained constant in its appeal to scholars through its many revisions. This Latin dictionary is among the best of its kind, reliable, compact and adequate for the needs of all save the specialist. Simpson has produced a book typographically easy to consult, combining elegance with utility. This edition incorporates English idioms and Latin spelling, includes general classical information where appropriate, shows long and short vowelswhere not immediately apparent, indicates irregular plural forms, cites and quotes ancient classical authors, and suggests paraphrases to express modern English in classical Latin form.
D. P. Simpson is Head of the Classical Department at Eton College.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! This dictionary is an indispensable help when reading Latin. Although it is reasonably small and very light, I found every word that I looked for when I read Classical Latin authors like Ovid, Cicero and Horace. It is less complete when one reads Mediæval writers or the Vulgate, but that is to be expected. The translations, furthermore, are complete and useful, with citations from Classical authors printed in the text. The English-to-Latin, by contrast, is a little out-dated, but still does duty when no other resources are to hand. Overall, I heartily recommend this to any student, reader, or writer of Latin!
