I was poking around on Google books this morning (as I have been doing a lot lately) and found the 1885 edition of Westcott and Hort’s New Testament. I don’t own a copy of that edition, but I do own a student’s edition from 1948. I compared the two and the only difference was my student edition has a lexicon in the back by W.J. Hickie (a most unfortunate name).
So this got me thinking: what was the first edition of the Greek New Testament to include a lexicon for the large mass of people like myself who don’t like carrying around BDAG? Anybody know?
