A supplement by the same author was published in 1906. A supplement by Elsie Wheeler was published in 1930. A supplement by John Burke was published in 1947. The Third Edition was published between 1951 and 1953 under the General Editorship of J Burke and P Allsop. The First Supplement to that edition was published in 1956.

The First Supplement to that edition was by the same author and was published in 1979.

Glanville Williams called it an "excellent work".[1]

Katherine Topulos said that the seventh edition is one of "the leading modern English legal dictionaries".[2]

The Dictionary is famous for its melancholic dedication, which survives to the current edition, reading "To the Cherished Memory of H.S., Friend and Wife, Ever and in all things, full of wise counsel and steadfast courage, Who took an affectionate interest in this enterprise, But whose too early death has taken away its charm, This Book is reverently and lovingly Dedicated. by F Stroud, Easter, 1890"
