Along with those of Black and Anderson, Ballentine's is one of the most important American dictionaries of the modern era.

Immediately popular, it went through three editions by 1969 and served as the basis of the College Law Dictionary (First edition, 1931) and the Self-Pronouncing Law Dictionary (1948). The 1916 edition retains its value as a handy but thorough one-volume reference.
