Cassell's Standard Latin Dictionary 3.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

This is a thorough Latin-English dictionary with more entries than you'd find in a pocket one. I would not however recommend this to a beginner because often quotes in Latin are given as examples for context and the dictionary assumes there is at least a rudimentary amount of knowledge for the language. It also leans more toward the classical rather than medieval, but I still would say this is a fine dictionary to have at hand when perusing any Latin text.
