An Alveary or Triple Dictionary, Baret (1574)

A dictionary translating words from English to Latin, French and occasionally Ancient Greek. There are 5,482 dictionary articles. Although the transcript preserves XVIth century English language, all keywords were indexed following the modern spelling, so look up for “girl” and “kiss” (not “girll” or “kisse”).

On-line version can be accessed on the LEME website.
