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..."

Max,
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.

Dictionary of the Vulgate New Testament by J.M. Harden, B.D., LL.D.  126 pages

Original year of publication: 1921
Reprinted in the year: 2007

A simple lexicon of the Vulgate New Testament that is based upon the Wordsworth-White edition of the Vulgate New Testament. Although spelling may be slightly different, it is certainly useful for the Clementine, New, or Stuttgart Vulgate. And useful for the Old Testament where word usage overlaps. This is a Latin-English dictionary.

CONCORDANCE FOR THE VULGATE

Concordance to the Vulgate Edition of the Holy Bible-Volumes I and II (Vulgatae Editionis Bibliorum Sacrorum Concordantiae) by F.P. Dutripon  1512 pages

Original year of publication: 1868
Reprinted in the year: 2007

This huge concordance will be the delight of any student of the Vulgate (this concordance is based on the Clementine version). This is an exhaustive concordance. No, it does not give every occurrence of "et", "in", "est", "ad", (like Strong's does in English) and other common words that occur too frequently to list but it does do a very good job of listing all the occurrences of other words. I have checked it against a modern electronic search program of the Vulgate and this one gets it right every time. The facsimile came out pretty well considering the age of the original copy. The text although moderately small, is very readable. This book is written entirely in Latin. A CD ROM edition is also available.

This hardcover is the casewrap style. Has a shiny, smooth “laminated” feel. Reminds me of my High School textbooks.

January 12, 2010

Having just received the Concordance, I am very pleased with the over-all quality of the volumes, especially considering the very affordable price. Presumably these were printed from a scanned copy but the print is clear, easy to read and stands out well on the pages. Thank you, and may God bless you, for making this very useful work available again.

"When I ordered the two volume Concordance to the Vulgate (Volumes I and II), I assumed they were used books because of the low price. In four days two brand spanking new books arrived. Am I pleased? Ooooh, yeaaaaahhhh..…"

A Concise Dictionary to the Vulgate New Testament by G.C. Richards, D.D.  130 pages

Original year of publication: 1926
Reprinted in the year: 2007

An exact publication date is not given, but the year 1926 is mentioned in the Preface, so I’ll safely assume this book was published in 1926 or later. Not as popular as J.M. Harden’s Dictionary of the Vulgate New Testament, but this dictionary is certainly worth a look. The entries are nearly the same but this one is in a slightly different format. This is a Latin-English dictionary.

The Place Names of the Roman Breviary in Latin and English by The Rev. F. Pinkman  24 pages

Original year of publication: 1935
Reprinted in the year: 2009

A handy pamphlet by Rev. F.  Pinkman, translating the place-names found in the Breviarium Romanum. These can be confusing and difficult to relate to a modern geographical location. Some are bit obvious (usually the transliterated ones) like- Assisium, Assisi or Mons Cassinus, Monte Cassino. Some are less obvious and a bit vague- Ad Catacumbas, The Catacombs, strictly so called ie. at S. Sebastiano or Herbipolis, Wurzburg. Over 480 place names are interpreted in this little book.
