Notes
  • Title-pages in red and black; with illustrations by L. F. D. B. engraved by P. Tanjé. Preliminary matter includes the dedication to Frederick, Prince of Wales, son of George II., and to his son George--afterwards George III.; Prolegomena, with alphabetum Græcum ex codicibus inserted after p. 2. Prologomena follow the title-page to v. 2; with additional Prologomena placed before Acts and Revelation. Revelation followed by Animadversiones et cautiones.
  • A distinctive feature of the book is the commentary printed at the foot of the page. The two spurious epistles ascribed to St. Clement of Rome in Syriac and Latin, edited by Wetstein, are appended to v. 2.
  • Below this matter stands the critical apparatus, the most elaborate which had yet been published, giving innumerable variants, and citing as authorities for and against these a vast body of witnesses -- MSS., versions, early fathers, and printed editions. Wetstein introduced the practice of indicating uncial MSS. by roman letters and the cursive MSS. by arabic numerals.
  • Perhaps in deference to the opinions of his friends, Wettstein did not print in his edition the text of Codex A (as he seemed at first to have intended), or a recension of his own, but merely reproduced the Elzevir text with very few variations. Immediately below, however, he indicated the changes which he considered absolutely necessary, from which it is easy to construct "Wetstein's text." Nearly all these proposed changes -- which according to Reuss, number 159 -- had appeared in previous editions, and are generally accepted to-day. The new readings, only nine in number, include ho for theos in 1 Tim. 3, 16.
  • Johann Jakob Wetstein, or more correctly Wettstein (1693-1754), was a member of the family of Amsterdam printers who produced G. v. Maestricht's Testament of 1711. In 1713 he defended at Basel, his native city, a thesis De variis N. T. lectionibus. After collating MSS. in various libraries, he at length obtained in 1733 a professorship in the Remonstrants' college at Amsterdam, in succession to Le Clerc. In 1730 the Wettstein press published his Prolegomena anonymously, and in 1735 he edited for the same firm a revision of G. v. Maestricht's Testament. At length in 1751-52 he produced the critical edition at which he had been labouring for many years.
