Ad antiquissimos testes denuo recensuit,apparatum criticum omni studio perfectum,apposuit commentationem isagogicam,praetexuit Constantinus Tischendorf.Editio octava critica maior. -- [Issued in 11 parts between 1864-72; volumen III. Prolegomena, by Caspar Rene Gregory, 1884-94, is not present.] -- Eberhard Nestle determined that the eighth edition varies from the seventh edition of 1859 in 3,572 places (as noted in Darlow & Moule, no. 4895) -- 'Karl Lachmann had prepared the way for the formulation of a critical text of the New Testament but for lack of sufficient manuscripts and other witnesses of the text from the first five hundred years was unable to produce a convincing edition. Taking his departure from Lachmann's presuppositions, Constantin von Tischendorf over a period of decades, compared and discovered countless manuscripts in European and Oriental libraries (the most famous of them being Codex Sinaiticus from the fourth century) and, on the basis of all the witnesses at his disposal and of citations from the church fathers, published numerous editions of the Greek New Testament, of which the eighth (1872) offered the critical material for a really methodical formulation of the text in such a superb form that it remains indispensable to our own day. On the basis of this material Tischendorf could claim that he had recovered, not simply the text of the fourth century to which Lachmann had aspired, but that of the second century.' (Werner G. Kummel, The New Testament : the history of the investigation of its problems, p. 185) VG quarter pigskin,rubbed sides. Monastery stamps on title-pages [Attributes: Hard Cover]
