The black photo is the 2010 Benediction Classics edition. It is just a photographic reproduction (dot-matrix-printed!) of the 1918 first edition (510 pages, "perfect-bound"). It's the same price as the latest edition (see below). 1 star.
The brown photo is of the 1984 Harvard copyright-renewed edition. It was revised by Gordon Messing in 1956; it has 784 beautifully sewn together pages. It's definitely better than Goodwin and worth every penny. 5 stars.
In conjunction with a smaller, more user-friendly grammar, however, it shines. Once you've learned the basics of a subject, you can use this to supplement and increase your efficacy in the chosen subject. For example, pages 313 to 337 detail the various uses of the genitive case, including possession, partitive, quality, explanation, cause and crime & accountability.
Smyth provides a hefty amount of accidence, although the cases follow Nom, Gen, Dat, Acc, Voc rather than the N V A G D that I would normally expect to encounter. The dual is explicitly catered for, instead of the passing footnotes many of the modern text books seem to espouse.
In summary, I should not recommend buying this book first. Invest in a smaller grammar and familiarise yourself with it before obtaining this weighty tome.
