We often have to go to: Richard Simon (1638-1712) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Simon in our studies, and there is a choice of New Testament editions. A critical history of the text of the New Testament : wherein is firmly establish'd the truth of those acts on which the foundation of Christian religion is laid (1689) https://books.google.com/books?id=bds7AAAAcAAJ https://archive.org/details/criyo00simo/page/n4 https://quod.lib.umich.edu/e/eebo2/A60241.0001.001?view=toc Richard Simon Critical History of the Text of the New Testament: wherein is Established the Truth of the Acts on which the Christian Religion is Based (2013) Andrew W. R. Hunwick http://books.google.com/books?id=Ia01_pLxGr8C http://books.google.com/books?id=2RYzAQAAQBAJ Generally, I like the older edition (except for some searching and OCR) Jan Krans did an excellent and rather viscerating review confirming problems in the new edition. review of Richard Simon, Critical History of the Text of the New Testament: Wherein is Established the Truth of the Acts on which the Christian Religion is Based (Translated, Introduced and Annotated by Andrew Hunwick; NTTSD 43; Leiden: Brill, 2013) https://www.academia.edu/31676065/r...by_Andrew_Hunwick_NTTSD_43_Leiden_Brill_2013_ ====================== On the first page, I find this hard to believe, or at least amazing. Simon’s Histoire critique du texte du Nouveau Testament https://www.facebook.com/groups/purebible/permalink/957974424294447/ has actually seen an earlier English translation, as early as 1689 a fact of which the present translator seems to have been unaware ===================== Note, however that the second volume I have not found VIEWABLE in the early edition: The critical history of the versions of the New Testament: Part 2 (1692) https://books.google.com/books?id=IU2QQAAACAAJ So that material might only be available in the Hunwick edition. A little checking is needed. ===================== With earlier material on Pure Bible group https://www.facebook.com/groups/purebible/permalink/957974424294447/ , later planned for PBF:
