Does anyone have the parts of this that are available already, which may just be the Summa?  I'd be interested in hearing any reviews, particularly as to value for someone who already has other versions.  

I use the Latin and English Summas for Latin practice.  I'm not knocking it, but for that purpose it would be helpful to have a more literal translation than the old one - i.e. the one by the Fathers of the English Dominican Province.  From what I can tell it appears that this Summa is at least partly a new translation.

It is the same translation, lightly edited. I do find it more convenient for citations.

Agreed.

That is what I was afraid of - thank you Sine!
