Reviews - What do customers think about Cassell's Latin Dictionary: Latin-English, English-Latin?

Excellent Resource  Jun 8, 2008
This edition replaced my Cassell's paperback editon & I'm very pleased with my selection. It's an excellent resource and very user friendly.
Concise but packed with helpul info  Apr 25, 2008
A handy size. Good grammer section. Useful pages on armies, currency, measures, dates, etc. Readable type. Recommended.
An Amazing Dictionary  Nov 5, 2007
This is a very inexpensive and indispensable dictionary for those who have more than a rudimentary understanding of Latin. The binding is very solid so the ugly yellow and orange cover can be tossed. The dictionary lays flat on the table for easy consultation. What I found most useful (so far I have been translating Vergil and Suetonius extensively) is that after the common definition of the word, the dictionary lists the meaning and words that normally accompany it for specific Roman authors.

For example:
largus -a -um, adj. (with compar. and superl.) (1) of things, abundant, plentiful, numerous, copious: cum sol terras larga luce compleverit, Cicero. etc... (and then the way that Vergil, Tacitus, Horace and others use largus -a-um)

The listing of how important authors commonly use the word is very helpful since words can have so many different meanings and this feature often makes comprehension of a difficult passage MUCH easier. Also, the volume has a Roman calender that is useful in figuring out Roman dates. I have not used the English to Latin section since I have not had to do any composition so please consult other reviewers on that aspect. This dictionary will last a lifetime. An amazing buy.
The Best!!!!  Nov 3, 2007
This is a dictionary. It is complete, does everything you could want for a reference book. A Latin student or teacher must have this.
Everyday Latin  May 13, 2007
I studied Latin intensely in high school years ago and often reallize how it influences my understanding of other languages. Recently I had the task of translating some Latin liturgical pieces but found my recolledtion of vocabulary somewhat clouded. I couldn't find my old texts and ordered this treatise and found what I needed. The book would more helpful if it had a summary of Latin grammar such as rules for declension, etc. Thanks.
