Bedrossian's Armenian-English grammar is an essential tool for those working in classical Armenian, especially in biblical texts, for which he provides many brief citations, unsigned. The dictionary itself is an excellent example of the superb scholarship that was pursued by the Mechitarist Fathers at San Lazzaro, Venice; another example is the 1805 edition of the Bible prepared by H. Zohrapian. It was first printed at Venice, 1875-1879; reprinted in Beirut: Librairie du Liban, 1973. This reprint has been unavailable for some time. There is really no replacement for Bedrossian in the English-speaking world and its republication is most welcome.
