What is this? Pardon my ignorance, but I'm not familiar with the name or the content. Is it a Greek text of the NT? I'd like to have some details before I decide to download and install it!
Wordsworth, 1856. Christopher Wordsworth, The New Testament of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, in the Original Greek: with Introductions and Notes. London: Rivingtons, 1856-60. This work was first published in four volumes: Part 1, Four Gospels, 1856; Part 2, Acts of the Apostles, 1857; Part 3, St. Paul's Epistles, 1859; Part 4, General Epistles and Book of Revelation, 1860. An Index volume to Parts 1-4, by the Rev. J. Twycrose, appeared in 1861. After the completion of the four parts, a two-volume edition of the whole was issued in 1860. Several two-volume editions followed, between 1862 and 1870.
It was not Wordsworth's main purpose to present a new Greek text in these volumes. His main object was to publish the introductions and exegetical notes, which amount to a complete commentary on the New Testament. The Greek text is a modest revision of the Received Text. The final edition of Wordsworth's text (1870) is collated against Estienne 1550 in Newberry 1877. (from http://www.bible-researcher.com/bib-w.html)
