Dear Dennis

Thank for the reply. Here is the information:

[On the spine]
Valpy's Greek Testament

[On the title page]
Novum Testamentum
in usum scholarum
editio nova
Whittaker et soc., Ave Maria Lane

No date given. It also contains both 1John 5:7-8 & Acts 8:37-38. Regarding
the _edition_ (thank you for the correction), I was trying to determine
which edition and by whom, i,e.: Stephen's 1550; Elzevir's 1624; etc.

Thank you again for all the help.

PS: Can you refer me to any good critical editions besides Nestlé-Aland &
UBS (already have them), thanks in advance.

Stefan Botha
