Accessories worth adding to the Perseus Classics and Duke Databank of Papyri Collections are the "Biblical Languages: Reference Grammars and Introductions (19 vols.)". The Classical Greek and Latin grammars will be a great help as soon as they become available. This Pre-Pub collection has "almost" gathered enough interest to go "Under Contract". . Here's the link:

Was I too subtle? Please help push this one over the topBig Smile

Yes, Stephen ... it took a bit of reading before it became obvious.

Now, on the other hand, there's 'Tom': Another style, no doubt.

But I've been signed up and you're right ... the collection would be GREAT for using Perseus!

At the risk of showing my ignorance, I do have a question for you Stephen. I have Logos 4 Platinum plus other books (i.e. just purchased the LSJ to help with the Perseus collection). The point is that I do have several lexicons. etc., in my library, but what would the "Biblical Languages Reference Grammars and Introductions (19 vols) add or contribute that I don't already have? I don't want to duplicate resources and am trying to evaluate the value of obtaining this collection.

Hi, Rich,

The "Biblical Languages: Reference Grammars and Introductions" is a high-end collection for folks who are really into language study. For the "Perseus Classics Collection"  the greatest help will be Herbert Weir Smyth's Greek Grammar for Colleges (the major English language grammar of Classical Greek), possibly D.B. Monro's more specialized Homeric Grammar, and the three volumes on the Septuagint. The Latin grammars will also be helpful with the Perseus collection.

The best way for you to decide whether this collection will be useful is to click on this link to "read all about it".

Shalom, shalom,
