It might be of some interest to a library which wishes to have as complete
a collection of NT Greek lexicons as possible. But as a tool, it is
impossibly outdated. Thayer is the end of that line, and has long outlived
its usefulness. (It was my first lexicon; I still keep my copy to remind
myself of how far we have come in my lifetime).
If you don't have it, buy Bauer.
