Donald Rayfield, editor in chief (with Rusudan Amirejibi, Shukia Apridonidze, Laurence Broers, Levan Chkhaidze, Ariane Chanturia, Tina Margalitadze) A Comprehensive Georgian-English Dictionary, 2006. 2 vols. pp xl + 1727. ISBN 978-0-9535878-3
All perfect new copies have now been sold.
However, we have, at the reduced price (£55 instead of £75) a limited number of slightly imperfect copies, which look the same, and have the same content and durability as the perfect copies. The difference is that 8 pages in volume 2 were accidentally left blank by the Turkish printers (it was Ramadan and a hot summer afternoon shift in 2006): these 8 pages have now been replaced by laser offprints. The result is that volume 2 is now 1 mm thicker. Otherwise, the imperfect copies are identical to the perfect ones.
Apologies to purchasers, to whom we now offer free of charge via Googledrive a searchable pdf of an updated (2019) and expanded version of the dictionary.
Postage: UK: £10.00; Europe £25; rest of world £35 (outside the UK we use DHL of Fedex, so PLEASE E-MAIL US YOUR TELEPHONE CONTACT NUMBER.
