LSJ is the "big" Greek Lexicon. It now lists the Linear B forms of Greek words, when they're known. OCT are one of four standard critical texts (OCT, The Loeb Seriers, the Teubner Edition (Loeb, but in German)( and there's a French one).

That's quite a good haul for the price!

Actually the Teubners are more like the OCT series - there is no translation in these. The French version of Loeb is Budé.

As long as we were discussing the Oxford University Press, why on Earth is the Oxford Latin Dictionary priced at about $200-250 (U.S.) everywhere it's sold? It'd be awesome to possess one, but... (nods head at the price)

Actually, I remember seeing one at amazon market place for $175. It's for the latest printing -2004 I think. I'm not sure if there is anything really different from the latest prininting, but I think the paper stock might be thinner...? To tell you the truth, I think the price isn't that ridiculous. If you buy a measley college textbook these days, it's around $100.
