If your decision is down to a choice between these two, by all means get
Guillemette. Bagster is a fossil and you don't want English glosses, since
that would encourage you to skip using your lexicon, very bad! The tirades
against Analytical Greek Lexicons regularly posted on this list are somewhat
overkill. I still use Guillemette. He is helpful in little ways you only
discover by owning him. There are other books available, like Mounce. I
cannot say much about Mounce, only looked at a library copy for a short
