It is based on the textus receptus, was originally done about 1820 in
England, uses a very small Greek font that also uses ligatures, and is very
tiny in the photographic reprint done in Athens. My copy used to go with me
to all meetings; now I take the small edition of Schmoller, the same size
as the 27th Aland.

Schmidt is a good buy. Cost about $5.00 in Athens. If people need it, I
could post the address [since my copy is in my office, I cannot do it at
this moment.]
