This customer ordered two sets!-

This is a difficult volume to find, and the quality of the reproduction is exceptionally good, especially considering the age of the exemplar. The perfect binding appears sturdy enough to stand up to repeated use, which this dictionary surely deserves. It is a beautifully produced edition at a very affordable price. Not only is this convenient dictionary useful in its own right (especially because of its many citations), but is also a very welcome companion to William Smith and Theophilus Hall's English-Latin Dictionary (currently available from Bolchazy-Carducci). Maximus Scriptorius has done Latinists and Latin students a great service in making this dictionary easily available once again.

We were pleased to receive this review from William Linney of Linney's Latin Class and Getting Started with Latin.

"...This unabridged dictionary, in two volumes, claims to have every Latin word in it, from all Latin literature.

I know that's an ambitious claim, so I tested it by looking up the most obscure word I could thing of: subnervo. I had trouble finding this word in any dictionary a few months back, and I doubted it would be in this dictionary. But lo and behold, there it was. The dictionary entry gave the literal meaning, the normal meaning, and even a figurative meaning, along with citations of Latin literature where the word could be found. I was very pleased to have such a resource on my shelf.

This dictionary is not cheap, but it's really worth having on your shelf if you translate texts of any kind..."

Received the dictionary last Saturday. It took less than two weeks. That is a speedy service. Very happy with the good quality of the reprint. I like the handy size of the dictionary.
I own both Lewis and Short's A Latin Dictionary and Oxford Latin Dictionary. I can list the following uniqueness of the Smith's in comparison to the other two.
(1) Comparative philological remarks on some entries to aid linguistic cognition to other ancient and modern languages.
(2) All plant and animal words are given binomial Linnaean naming as part of their translation/definition.
In summary, great service and beautiful book.
