The ערוך השלם is a fantastic work and invaluable for learning Gemara. It was written by Alexander (Chanoch Yehuda) Kohut in the late 19th century. It is six volumes. It is available in those volumes on Hebrewbooks.org. (E.g. Volume 1)

To my knowledge, this work hasn’t been reprinted, if so, why?

    Some of the works of the Vilna Gaon haven't even been reprinted. I think the book not being reprinted has nothing to do with the reputability of the work. – ezra Feb 19 '18 at 1:33
  • i think this is a legit. question about this sefer, if there is some info on it that would be interesting to shmuel. +1 – heshy Feb 19 '18 at 4:10
  • I imagine Jastrow's dictionary's availability, especially it being in English, has a lot to do with it; the coming of Artscroll is most likely also a factor – user15253 Feb 19 '18 at 12:41

It has been reprinted a few times. The NLI lists 6 editions (of which one is the original so that makes 5 reprints. There's also one other book showing up in the linked search that you should ignore). I recently got rid of my copy, but it was a reprint from Pardes, a New York based publisher who made it in the 50s. Here's the title page:

Aruch Hashalem from Pardes.
