I think this means that this text follows very closely the Stephanus
Renaissance edition of Erasmus' edition of the GNT, that it was prepared by
Professor Emeritus P. Wilson of what is now Columbia University in New
York, that it was printed at the presses of Hammond Wallis in New York, and
that the publisher is Oliver D. Cooke & Sons of Hartford, CT, date of
publication 1822. For the Stephanus printings of Erasmus' GNT see Metzger,
_The Text of the New Testament_, pp. 103-104. The Parisian publisher was
actually named Robert Estienne, but is better known by the Latin form of
his name, Stephanus.
