The paper quality is a little less than usual dictionaries, but I think it will hold. The letters are small, but cramming all those words in such a book would render it expectable.
(1) It is the only Sanskrit dictionary that lists all unique words and special meanings of words used in Vedic Sanskrit (Vedas, Brahmanas, Aranyakas, Upanishads). If you want to read even some excerpts of these texts in original Sanskrit, this dictionary is a must-have.
(2) It has the largest vocabulary of any Sanskrit dictionary I've seen (Apte, Macdonell, Max Muller). If you want to find the meaning of every word you read in the excerpts of these texts in original Sanskrit, this dictionary is a must-have.
This is the 2010 hardcover edition published by Nataraj books in USA, and the pages and binding are good and hopefully will hold together for a long time. Words are listed in each page in three columns, with Sanskrit in bold font and English meaning in regular font. The font in the English text is quite clear and readable.
Only the Sanskrit "root" words are in Devanagari font while the "derivative" words are in transliterated Roman font. The Devanagari font print is a bit smudgy and sometimes hard to read. Also the mixing of Devanagari and Roman fonts for Sanskrit words make it very confusing when you're trying to alphabetically search for a word because some of the diacritic marks used with Roman font are smudgy and not very clear.
