Using the Table of Contents, I count 98 languages, plus 9 articles on various larger families, in the digest 600 page one version. I don't know on the $110 book, but I think in the Introduction to the Concise Compendium it says there are about 300 languages in the larger book. Hopefully that helps in your decision. -Doug
