by Adam Littleton

A Latin to English dictionary, being pat I of Adam Littleton's two volume work... In the English-Latine, more words and properties of our language, as now spoken, are set down, by several thousands, than in any other dictionary yet extant. This work is considered a more prescriptive revision of Francis Gouldman's earlier Latin dictionary.
