Since its first appearance in 1854, this dictionary has remained constant in its appeal to scholars through its many revisions. This Latin dictionary is among the best of its kind, reliable, compact and adequate for the needs of all save the specialist. Simpson has produced a book typographically easy to consult, combining elegance with utility. This edition incorporates English idioms and Latin spelling, includes general classical information where appropriate, shows long and short vowels where not immediately apparent, indicates irregular plural forms, cites and quotes ancient classical authors, and suggests paraphrases to express modern English in classical Latin form.

Although the revisers removed post-Augustan vocabulary, aiming primarily at a dictionary of classical Latin, they left a wide range of translations for the standard vocabulary which makes this quite a handy reference for late Latin too, compared to the more strictly classical (though much larger) Oxford Latin Dictionary.
