From the Inside Flap:

Cassell's Latin Dictionary Since its first appearance in 1854 and through many revisions this dictionary has remained constant in its appeal to scholars. As Head of the Classical Department at Eton College, D. P. Simpson was uniquely qualified to revise the work in the light of modern knowledge and he has introduced fresh material from a number of sources. In English idiom and Latin spelling he has followed present-day usages.
