Re: [textualcriticism] Which edition of W-Hs Introduction should I buy?
- Peter:I have an edition of Westcott and Hort done by Hendrickson in 1988 (ISBN: 0913573949). The discrepency may be due to the fact that the Hendrickson edition has an Appendix with Notes on Selected Readings that is numbered separately from the body of the book. The Introduction is pages i-xxxii (Preliminary matter), the book proper is pages 1-324, and the appendix (Notes on Selected Readings) is 1-188. The Wipf and Stock editions are always a lot more expensive because they keep things in print that other publishers don't have. My counsel would be get the Hendrickson editionProf. Kevin W.

Subject: [textualcriticism] Which edition of W-Hs Introduction should I buy?
I'm looking to buy Westcott & Hort's Introduction to the New Testament in the Original Greek but I'm confused about the two editions I see on Amazon. The first was published in 2003 by Wipf & Stock but is only 220 pages according to Amazon and sells new for $40. The second edition is published by Hendrickson, is 544 pages long, and sells used for $25. Is there a reason for these discrepancies? Is the Wipf & Stock edition condensed or edited? Is one better than the other? (I'm assuming the longer is better.)
