The name "rime dictionary" refers to the internal organization into rime tables (or rhyme tables), which list Chinese characters by their phonological properties.
These books were lexicographically more than mere rime tables, however, and functioned as dictionaries, giving other information about characters, for instance, word meanings or alternate pronunciations.

 The New Nelson Japanese English Character Dictionary (with Slipcase)
The New Nelson Japanese-English Character Dictionary is based on the classic Nelson edition, but has undergone significant thorough revision, although whether the changes be improvements or otherwise is debateable, insofar that this new edition little resembles its older counterpart save in content.
For this latter use, the dictionary serves its purpose admirably, having such a comprehensive vocabulary that one seldom notices its omissions.
In short, this new dictionary is certainly better than the classic, and surpassed by few other Japanese-English character dictionaries on the market, and flawed though it is, nonetheless indispensable for the serious reader of Japanese.

The English-Japanese volume of this wonderful dictionary is simply indispensable to beginners of the language once they have mastered the two kana scripts, viz, hiragana and katakana, as would be expected of any serious student, since the dictionary does not contain any Romanised entries.
One great feature about this dictionary particularly valuable to beginners who may not know many kanji is that all the kanjis, be they in the entries or the examples, have small kanas printed over them indicating their pronunciation, i.e., furigana.
For instance, whereas the rules of the game expressly allows slang and archaic words, many of the same were omitted from the dictionary on the grounds of 'offensiveness', despite their being attested of old.

 How to determine the radical of a kanji
While the radical table lists the characters and character-components that could be a radical (“radical candidates”), what determines where in the dictionary any given kanji is to be found are the rules that determine which of the several radical candidates in the kanji actually is its radical.
As is usual in traditional character dictionaries, the directions for use refer to the Kangxi zidian, without explaining its rules for determining the radical of a kanji.
Although the directions for using this dictionary give a relatively detailed explanation of the deviations from the traditional radical system of the Kangxi zidian, that system itself is not explained but is assumed to be known.

The New Nelson rearranges the structure of the dictionary re-introducing obsolete meaning-based radicalsýEwhich were so fiercely criticised in the first edition of NelsonýLs dictionary.
To sum up, the dictionary not only does not solve anything, but it even comes back to the system condemned as early as in Rose-Innes Beginners Dictionary of Chinese-Japanese Characters published in the beginning of the century.
I would suggest to anyone thinking about buying a kanji dictionary to look through the major ones, perhaps in a university library, to get a feel for them, because personal preference plays a huge role in selecting one that suits you.

Published in a well-produced woodblock edition by the London Missionary Society at Canton, this work is often referred to as Chalmer's 'Concise Kanghsi Dictionary'.
The main part of the book does indeed consist of brief entries for the characters of the famous imperially commissioned dictionary, with pronunciation guides and the most basic of definitions.
However, apart from indexes, the main initial section of the work is a 'Zong Yin Biao' or table of pronunciations with information on rhymes and other aspects of pronunciation of the characters for China's major dialects.

 Chinese character
The first component (or "radical") simply tells that the character denotes a female entity, whereas the second acts as a pronunciation guide by referring to the word for "horse", which is also pronounced 'ma', though in a different tone.
This number, however, is exaggerated, as the most comprehensive dictionary (the Kangxi[?] Dictionary 康熙字典) lists about 40,000 characters.
If the radical chosen by the user matches the radical used by the dictionary compiler (not a problem in this simple example, but it can be tricky), and if both user and dictionary compiler count strokes the same way (occasionally a problem), the entry will be found.
