Summer Trivia – Find the Missing Editions


The following nice but incomplete collection of Nestle/Nestle-Aland editions is arranged in order (I was tempted to shuffle them and ask for the right sequence).  Which do you think are still missing? (NB: in two cases there are two printings of the same edition – spot these as well.)


  1. Using a combination of a priori reasoning and observation I'd hazard that you've got at least 1, 2, 7, 13, 23, 25, 26, 27.

  2. Pete, you are 75% correct (and that is a clue).

  3. Well, 26 and 27 are certain.

    Maybe 1 and 2 are missing!

  4. Yes 1 and 2 are missing!

    And, yes, 26 and 27 are there in two printings each.

    One more is missing.

  5. The correct answer is: nos. 1, 2 and 5. This is not my own collection, but I actually have a copy of the first edition, so I assume this collector is a bit jealous :-).
