No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Light page tanning. Hinges not cracked. Cover has light wear. . . . . .COMPLETE. Excellent and exhaustive to be sure. Recommend, however, starting with 'A Primer of Biblical Greek' by N. Clayton Croy FIRST. That is, unless you already know all the grammar lingo like what the difference between a genitive and dative is and things like that. I say this because this Robertson will even TELL you that it won't waste time explaining this stuff, assuming you already are knowledgeable about this basic stuff. I mean, this book is totally worth every cent, but understand, it is a philological grammar, an in-depth historical and linguistic take on Greek grammar of the Koine, so it's almost assuming an audience of linguists. Not bad. But REALLY in-depth, with a cool introduction that weighs in at like 140 pages. Now, if you start with the grammar I recommended (seven bucks used on Amazon, $26 new), you will get ALL the knowledge you need to approach Robertson and Croy even tells you this in the primer, and lists Robertson in the bibliography for further study. But if you simply want THE authoritative reference grammar then Robertson is it. I own it, but when I opened it and started reading, then realized i need to get to the nitty-gritty because I'm already reading the Greek New Testament, I found that even the chapters on the declensions are very involved and I'd forgot my declensions! So? I put my Robertson away and grabbed my Croy, Just a helpful suggestion for all you non-linguists out there like me (I thought linguistics was a hobby for me until THIS book, LOL). -- Ben Wiley
