Illustrated Dictionary to Xenophon's Anabasis

I've seen remarks on Textkit about the poor quality of reprints being sold by some original publishers and the recommendation to buy old editions on-line (which I have done quite a bit). I decided to buy a copy of An Illustrated Dictionary To Xenophon's Anabasis by White & Morgan from a reprint service in India (Gyan Books). The price, delivered to the US, was $19. It wasn't the cheapest option on abebooks, but I hoped to get a good quality book.

The quality is very good. I don't know much about binding, but I can see by the thread in the fold of pages that the book has been sewn. The image quality is very good and the font size is quite nice.

I know that this print-on-demand was done in 2015, but if this is typical of Gyan Books, I'll be happy to buy more.
