Sir Thomas Elyot


The first Latin-English dictionary for use in schools was published by Sir Thomas Elyot in 1538.

His earlier work The Governour advises on arrangements for education in gentlemen's households, and sections X & XI of Book One provide an insight on the classical works he believed worthwhile studying.
