Edit: Definitely used. No one wrote in it or anything, just the pages are oldish, and the hardcover has scratches ect. I dont mind it, because its really minor. Its a great dictionary but I just thought I was buying it new. :)
I have four of these dictionaries. I bought one, used it up, and then bought three more. I also bought a tube of very strong glue and glued my old one back together. I've been using it now for about 18 years. I can't praise the book highly enough.
Instead, get an electronic dictionary. They are far, far easier to use, have far more entries and far more information. For example, you can look up a word by spelling it out in hiragana, get the English definitions, plus sample sentences, plus kanji. An electronic dictionary is far smaller and lighter. The only draw back is the price -- about $150 to $300, depending on the model. Nevertheless, if you are really going to learn Japanese, a book dictionary like this is pretty much useless compared to the electronic version. Everyone in my third year Japanese class at UCLA extension would tell you the same thing.
Electronic dictionaries are readily available all over Japan, but they seem to be hard to find in the US. Amazon does not seem to carry them. You may have to ask around.
