William Smith (1813-1893) abandoned a legal career to become a prolific author of classical reference works. His name was a guarantee of quality scholarship - though over half of this dictionary was in fact the work of Hall. Designed for students writing Latin prose, it provides a careful analysis of the various meanings of English words, phrases and idioms, giving the nearest Latin equivalents from the best classical authors; it also includes a list of Latin personal and place-names. No jacket.
