    Very impressive indeed – I consulted the Latin and Greek volumes (I have used the second of these previously in hard copy) and found them very useful and usable.

    This compendium is simply a must, essential not only for linguists, but in translation studies, philosophical research and writing, etc. In short, for getting acquainted with the long history of our ideas.
