I got lucky. Judging by the scribblings on the inside front covers, they were all owned by the same person, who attended a seminary here once upon a time. I would guess that he died recently, upon which his books were picked up by the bookstore I frequent at the estate sale. I found them lying on a table, before they were even shelved properly, so I beat everyone else to them.

It's a slim blue book, errm... 5-1/4" by 7-5/8" by 3/4". About 250 pages long. It's split up into three parts, part the first (I love that old lingo) being 25 lessons in Greek constructions, with for a total of about 90 pages. In the words of the author "the standpoint of treatment is English, rather than Greek, idiom. In many cases they [the lessons] take the form of directions for turning English into Greek. For example, the different Greek equivalents for while, until, whenever, as if, etc., are collected and arranged so as to make the learning of them and the reference to them as easy as possible." Part the second is about 100 pages long, with 60 exercises based on the Anabasis, books one through three, and 41 supplementary exercises. Part the third is a classified list of words and phrases from the Anabasis books one through seven, with the classifications like 1. Arms, 2. Army, divisions of, 3. Baggage, 4. Battles, etc.
I would be willing to share, but my scanner scans too well, and makes huge PDF files, and I don't have access to a Xerox machine any more. I wouldn't mind sending it to somebody else to scan in for textkit, though, as long as I get it back. The same goes for Hadley and Allen.
I, Lex Llama, super genius, will one day rule this planet! And then you'll rue the day you messed with me, you damned dirty apes!
