PREFACE.

The present volume forms the fourth and concluding portion of the exhaustive edition of the Anglo-Saxon Gospels, as planned by Mr Kemble. The first portion was published in 1858, with the title—“The Gospel according to St Matthew, in Anglo-Saxon and Northumbrian Versions, synoptically arranged : with collations of the best Manuscripts. Edited for the Syndics of the Pitt Press. Cambridge: at the University Press. 1858." This text was edited by Mr Kemble to the end of p. 192, and completed by Mr Hardwick, who added a very short Preface, to indicate the names of the MSS. from which the volume was edited. The title is so worded as possibly to convey a wrong impression; since the MSS. collated include not only “the best,” but “all” the MSS. now known to exist.

The second portion was published in 1871, with the title—“The Gospel according to St Mark, in Anglo-Saxon and Northumbrian Versions, synoptically arranged, with collations exhibiting all the readings of all the MSS. Edited for the Syndics of the University Press, by the Rev. Walter W. Skeat, M.A. Cambridge: at the University Press, 1871." The Gospel of St Luke was published in 1874, with a similar title.

The arrangement of the subject-matter is the same in this volume as in the three volumes preceding it. The following is the scheme of the contents of any two opposite pages, after p. 11.
