About this Item

Based on John Mill's much-lauded 1707 edition of the Greek New Testament, this is the second issue of Ludolph K?ster's revised version, originally published in 1710. A scholar from the Westphalia region of Germany, K?ster (1670?1716) specialized in paleography and Greek; this printing includes his preface and Prolegomena, and extensive commentary in Latin below the main text. Using twelve new manuscripts in his research, K?ster significantly added to Mill's (1645?1707) collation. The title-page, printed in red and black, features an => engraved vignette of the Virgin Mary enthroned above the Earth, flanked by an eagle, a lion, a bull, and an angel, representing the Four Evangelists, and there are => five additional, large, illustrative engraved vignettes functioning as headpieces in the text. Printed double-column and divided in the middle of each page by a paragraph of citations, the text is dotted by a variety of woodcut floriated and historiated initials, and factotum Greek capitals. Provenance: Front pastedown with pencilled inscription "C.B.P.B. 1709" and with bookplate of Newton Theological Institution (properly deaccessioned), noting gift from library of Edward Cushing Mitchell, D.D., class of 1853. Folio (cm, "). [20], 168, [2], 632 pp.; illus. Darlow & Moule 4735. Contemporary mottled sheep, rebacked some time ago; scuffed and worn, front joint starting from head and foot, extremities rubbed and chipped. Front pastedown with inscription and bookplate as above; two text pages institutionally pressure-stamped. Offsetting to margins of first and last few leaves; waterstaining to inner portions of first 80 and a few final pages, touching (but not obscuring) text on some pages and a small area of the first headpiece. One proud corner folded over, several other corners bumped; scattered spots of light staining and ink smears, not obscuring sense; occasional small edge nick. One early inked marginal annotation in English and Greek. Very readable and usable. Bookseller Inventory # 34825
