Sorry for the lack of clarity.  The book above is the diglot with 100 
pages of Greek text facing 100 pages of English translation.

The full Synekdemos is over 1000 pages fully in Greek.  I don't own a 
copy of this book myself, so I don't have the full information handy. 
I've only seen them sold through small Orthodox bookstores in the 
states.  The people I know with a copy purchased them on trips to Greece.

You can see the catalog record for several published versions at Holy 
Cross Greek Orthodox Seminary Libary.


Click on the catalog link and enter Synekdemos in a title search.

Another liturgical book that may be of reading interest to some is the 
Synaxarion.  This contains a brief lives of the saints or story of a 
feast that are read at services for the feast day.  If Greek lyric 
poetry is your thing, then the Triodion (lent), Pentecostarion (Easter 
to Pentecost) or Menaion (feasts of the year) are the ticket.
