This is - hands down - the best Ancient Greek dictionary ever assembled; a kind of monument to the Ancient Greek past, really, as well as the scholars who explored it. But unlike most monuments this is a highly useful one, especially now that it's digital and dynamically linked. I have long owned the large dead-tree version - and it has served me well for many years. As I have found myself increasingly using my Logos version LSJ, I'm afraid my "Big Blue Wonder" (what I call it! lol) is going to have to retire to the living room, where guests may lovingly gaze upon its spine while sipping cocktails. Not a bad place to be I suppose. Anyway, the scholarship is impeccable; the dictionary is very readable; not a day goes by when I don't find it useful. No one who cares about Ancient Greek language and literature should be without it. Buy it and treasure it. It's like a great city, not unlike, say, Paris, where one can wander about and explore for the rest of one's life and still not exhaust what it has to offer.
- Incidentally, Henry Liddell (Dean of Christ Church, Oxford) was the father of Alice Liddell, who was much photographed by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, who is actually Lewis Carroll. Lewis Carroll wrote, among other things, Alice in Wonderland, featuring Alice of course, who was based upon Henry Liddell's daughter.
