A new edition with references and marginal readings." The Historical catalogue of printed Christian Scriptures ... of the Indian sub-continent tells us that is is "J. Wenger's revision [of W. Yates' translation], with section headings, references in the outside margin and 'readings' at the foot of the page. These include alternative and literal renderings . . . Doubtful passages are placed in round brackets and implied words in square brackets. The transliteration 'baptize' is given in the margin." And the title-page states that the work was "translated from the original Greek by the Calcutta Baptist Missionaries." The English title-page is followed by a title-page in Bengali script. The text, including notes is entirely in Bengali script.
