You will find "Herbert Weir Smyth, A Greek
                     Grammar for Colleges


The interface you found at the Berlin mirror site is the interface which
now appears on the CD-ROM of the platform-independent v.2 of Perseus. It
also appear when you go to: http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/

You won't find the 1956 edition for reasons of copyright.

Originally, the work was given the " .... for Colleges " title, to
distinguish it from a simplified version " ..... for Schools". The 1956
edition did away with the distinction, but the older title serves still to
distinguish what is in the public domain, as against what is still
protected by copyright. Much of the difference, it would appear, lies in
the omission
of historical material from the first edition, plus some corrigenda and an
addition to some few sections
