Walshe's Dictionary

On the Access to Insight website, under the brief bio for Maurice Walshe, there is this sentence:

"A few months before he died he completed a Buddhist Pali dictionary."

Was this dictionary ever published? Has anyone seen it? If so, is it any good?

Thanks.

With metta,
Sherubtse

This is news to me. I doubt it's been published as I would almost certainly have heard about it.

Best wishes,

I saw this dictionary last autumn in the Amaravati Buddhist Monastery's library.
It was just a manuscript, typewritten A4 pages, and not very voluminous. 30-40 pages if I remember well...

The Pali Text Society's dictionary is available online.
