After in- troductory chapters on the history of editions of the Septuagint from Holmes and Parsons through the Cambridge and Gbttingen editions, the book is divided into two parts. The first is on the origin and transmission of the Septuagint according to the Letter of Aristeas as well as according to other writings, the revisions of the LXX by Aquila, Theodotion, and Symmachus, the work of Origen's Hexapla, and the Tiifaria Varietas according to Jerome.
