Thank you Wieland + Ron for your very prompt replies.

I followed up Wieland's reference and then a "chain" which led me to
Kent D Clarke's summary article 'Textual Certainty in UBS' Greek NT',
Nov.Test.,44:2, Apr.2002,p.105, which has a summary table (p.113),
much like Ron's but easier to read! This table lists the number of
ABCD's in each book by each edition of UBS4.

A=514, B=541, C=367 + D=9

These numbers are slightly different from those in Ron's email:
A=513, B=539, C=366 + D=9 (also for UBS4), so I'm slightly puzzled but

Once again many thanks,

These differed from those in Ron's email: A=513, B=539, C=366 + D=9.

Reading thru' KDC's footnotes (n12,p109-110 in particular) I
discovered that he points out the figures 'are in small discord with
the [UBS's] figures.' Clarke puts this down to the UBS counting
'passages' rather than 'individual letter-rated variants' which he
counted.

So that's all the i's crossed and t's dotted (sic)!
