An harmony of the Gospels: in which the original text is disposed after Le Clerc's general manner; with such various readings at the foot of the page as have Wetstein's sanction in his folio edition of the Greek Testament. Observations are subjoined tending to settle the time and place of every transaction, to establish the series of facts, and to reconcile seeming inconsistencies
printed by Robert Marchbank, for William Hallhead, Dublin 1778 - First edition, tall folio (18½ inches), pp. [4], x, 279, [1], 72 (Notes on the Harmony of the Gospels, Appendixes, Notes), [4] (tables); engraved map of the Holy Land with an inset of Jerusalem; text largely in 6 columns; text in Greek and Roman character, occasional perinent inserts pasted in the margins (largely Greek), occasional ink and pencil annotations in the margins, early ownership inscripts of Wm. Leversage, Brasenose College, Oxon; and a slightly later one of Thomas Vowler Short, Christ Church, Oxon, July 17, 1813 (1790-1872, Bishop of Sodor and Man, and of St. Asaph); contemporary full speckled calf, neatly rebacked, old red morocco label preserved; edges a bit rubbed, but the binding is sound and on the whole it's all very good. The six columns of text have 4 larger ones in the center of the page (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), and two smaller ones on the sides of time and place which Newcome strives to "harmionize," meaning to place in chronological order. The annotations are likely in Short's hand. [Attributes: First Edition]
