Dear David,

For Śabdakalpadrumaḥ, Banglapedia reports 1819 for the first volume and 1858 for the last (https://en.banglapedia.org/index.php/Shabdakalpadruma#:~:text=Shabdakalpadruma%20Sanskrit%20dictionary%20compiled%20by,annexure%2C%20was%20published%20in%201858}.

For Vācaspatyam, WorldCat reports the original publication dates as 1873-1884 (https://search.worldcat.org/title/vachaspatyam-a-comprehensive-sanskrit-dictionary/oclc/830765108?referer=di&ht=edition).

From what I can find Rādhākānta lived 1784-1867 (Śrī Wikipedia uvāca <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radhakanta_Deb>), while Tārānātha lived 1812-1885 (Śrī Brian Hatcher uvāca <https://www.jstor.org/stable/3876590>). The wonderful Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries website lists the dates of publication as 1886 for the Śabdakalpadruma and 1873 for the Vācaspatyam. But this seems to flip the sequence. And I found an article <https://www.jstor.org/stable/25207458> R. Lenz from 1835 glorifying the first three volumes of the Śabdakalpadruma.
