A few years ago I scanned Greenough's "Special Vocabulary to Virgil". Now I decided to upload it for everyone's use. Greenough, of course, is the famous author of the good old "New Latin Grammar" still considered the best by many. Here are his words regarding this dictionary, which went through multiple printings over a century ago:

"The author, in preparing this vocabulary to accompany his Virgil, or for use with other editions, has had two things in view: first, to supply as much information as was possible in regard to the history and uses of the Latin words, so that the book should not be a mere key to translate by, but should also furnish means for the study of the language itself; and, secondly, at the same time to give or suggest a suitable English expression for every passage."
