But definitely I will get all their volumes in the future, I think, when I have more money.
In spite of its bulk, this is not a systematic survey but an anthology of monographs by different authors. The approach is generally functional/typological rather than structuralist, and the articles vary greatly in length, readability, and utility, though the latter two factors will be determined to some extent by your own background.
The star of the show for me is Gerd Haverling's 200 page chapter (in volume 2) entitled "Actionality, Tense, and Viewpoint", which is marvellous both for its clarity and for its diachronic scope. On certain questions it does not pretend to be conclusive, whilst certain claims it makes will not meet with universal agreement. It offers penetrating insight, nonetheless.
At the opposite extreme, Hannah Rosen's "Coherence, Sentence Modification and Sentence-part Modification" (from Volume 1) is an impenetrably, and at times not even idiomatically, written compendium of data that gives us plenty of cold hard facts, admittedly, but little in the way of illumination.

I'd be astonished if that was legal. Are there no copyright laws in your country?
Baldi/Cuzzolin is no substitute for Woodcock, but equally Woodcock is no substitute for Baldi/Cuzzolin.
