Oh no, there's been an error
LibraryThing's MDS system is based on the classification work of libraries around the world, whose assignments are not copyrightable. MDS "scheduldes" the words that describe the numbers are user-added, and based on public domain editions of the system. Sep- tuagint Commentary Series.
This series first appeared in with A. Graema Auld's commentary on the Greek text of Joshua. The series breaks ground in Septuagintal studies by being the first commentary series in English specifically on the LXX texts the International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies also has a series forthcoming [SBL Commentary on the Septuagint], albeit with a differently expressed method, purpose, and goal.
Beyond its original contribution, however, one will be hard- pressed to find an official statement from the editors on the impetus behind the publication of this series or its method and goal, either printed in the commentaries themselves or on Brill's website.

- Fundamental Food Microbiology.
- The Grub-And-Stakers Move a Mountain (Grub-And-Stakers, Book 1);

Second, and more specifically, this series seeks to examine the Greek OT of Vaticanus as "an artifact in its own right and primarily for its own sake" p. According to Glenny, this enables an investigation of "[what] the text of Hosea [B] would have meant to an early Greek reader of it, who did not know Hebrew and possibly did not even have access to the Hebrew text of the book" p. Put negatively, the method of this series is expressly not concerned with the comparison of the MT and the LXX.
Nor is it concerned to discover any supposed Vorlage.
