The Latin-English section of this dictionary is an entirely revised edition of Professor K. Feyerabend's well-known dictionary, which went through several editions.
A special feature is the marking of 'hidden' quantities. There is an introductory account of the development of the Latin language, and just before the main text there is a list of the Roman authors whose vocabulary is included, and information on the arrangement of the dictionary.
The English-Latin section of the dictionary offers a Classical prose vocabulary. Equivalents have been drawn wherever possible from Cicero and Cæsar, and where notes on a word's construction are given they are likewise based on the best prose usage.
