The first edition of Smyth's GREEK GRAMMAR was published in 1920 by Harvard
UP; the revised edition prepared by Gordon Messing was published in 1956 by
Harvard UP. I make note of this difference between the two editions because
the section numbering usually referred to in our discussions is to the 1956
revised edition, not to the edition posted on-line at the Perseus site.
Nevertheless, it really IS very nice to have even the first edition
available on-line. Seems to me I've heard or read that the Perseus people
hope to have an on-line text of Kčhner-Gerth at some point in the offing.
